A CENTURY has nearly gone by since Chopin earned for Poland a distinctive place in the world of music. Now there is a promising group of Composers known as ' Young Musical Poland,' the member so far best known to us in this country being Szymanowski.
Ludomir Rozycki is another important figure in the group. He was born in Warsaw forty-three years ago, and studied at the Warsaw Conservatoire, as well as in Berlin under Humperdinek.
His works include several Operas—Boleslas the Bold, dealing with early Polish history; Medusa, which is based on a tale from the life of Leonardo da Vinci ; Casanova ; and Eros and Psyche. The most reoent is Beatrice Cenci , partly founded on Shelley's tragedy.
He has written also symphonic Poems,
Chamber Music and songs, besides the Concerto we are to hear.
This, a work of romantic tendency, not aggressively ' modern,' is in three Movements —the FIRST by turns brilliantly forceful and lyrical, the SECOND a song-like quiet Slow Movement, and the THIRD a bold Movement starting in dance-like style and broadening out, the Piano maintaining a full flow of tone almost the whole time.
GLAZOUNOV was born in Petrograd (where ho still lives) sixty-two years ago. This Symphony, in E Flat, is the fourth of eight that ho has composed, and his forty-eighth work (of about eighty altogether). It is in three movements.
FIRST MOVEMENT. A rather dow, plaintive Introduction, leading into a quick Movement, in which the tune heard at the opening of the Introduction is made use of. SECOND MOVEMENT. A Scherzo, a rapid lively Movement.
THIRD MOVEMENT. Another rather slow Introduction leading into a quick Movement. Hero again, the First Main Tune of the slow portion (it comes on the Clarinet) is employed in the quick Movement proper. In the course of his development of the many ideas he uses, the Composer introduces a reminiscence of the Symphony's opening melody.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
