Age and youth come together for a performance of Brahms's mighty Fourth
Symphony. Italian maestro Carlo Maria Giulini , who celebrated his 80th birthday earlier this year, conducts the European Youth Orchestra and beforehand talks about his approach to Brahms, and about the orchestra.
The ECYO is a unique ensemble of 140 musicians between the ages of 14 and 23 and drawn from every member state. "Working with these marvellous players has been an unforgettable experience which has enriched my life, both as a man and a musician, " says
Giulini. "They give their all in the service of music - perfect preparation and plentiful love and enthusiasm coupled with the joy of aspiringto express their individual musicality away from their own country's typical style of playing."
Tonight's broadcast in this
"first hundred years of the Proms" season is a recordingof the second half of last
Saturday's Brahms Night.
Brahms was first honoured in this traditional Proms manner-an evening dedicated entirely to his music - back in 1900. It is introduced from the Royal Albert Hall by James Naughtie. Director David Stevens
Executive producer Jonathan Fulford

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.
