Halle Concert


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
THIS Concerto is in the usual three movements. the first being the longest and most elaborate. Ihere is a full-sized introduction by the orchestra in which the main theme is heard at the beginning. There are two other themes, of which the second, by its rhythm, has a big influence on the whole course of the movement. The solo violin, when it enters, has a brilliant passage leading up to the first main theme, which it follows soon afterwards with the follows soon afterwards with the second principal tune. It has another broad melody in double notes, and still one other new melody, also in double notes. Towards the end, in the usual place, there is a great Cadenza for which Joachim is thought to be responsible.
The second movement is begun by the oboe, and the whole short movement is in the meditative mood which the opening suggests,
The last movement is in Rondo form. that is the form in which the main tune keeps on coming back after other themes have appeared. The solo instrument begins with the main theme.
Violin Solos
Overture, 'Carnival in Paris' Svendsen
LIKE most of Svendson's music, the Carnival in Paris is cosmopolitan rather than specially Scandinavian ; it bears the impress of a sturdy individuality, and. like all his work, is marked by very careful, tidy, craftsmanship. Owing its origin to the composer's happy experience of the gay city at the time when the Second Empire was flourishing, it is a lively, highly effective piece of descriptive music which is happily described by Its own title.
The chief tune seems at first unwilling to let itself bo heard in full, but emerges anon in a very merry, bustling guise. It is succeeded by a sprightly, dainty, tune, one which undergoes' many transformations as the different instruments toss it about. It appears later in a much slower and more suave form, to return presently in its original mood of merriment. The different tunes are used singly and together in the most effective way, and the carnival grows more and more boisterous as it proceeds, to end in a regular outbreak of mirth and bustle.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
