Season 193S-9
Fourth Concert from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lesees, Messrs. Chappell and Co. Lid.)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Eugene Goossens
In his analysis of this symphony Sir George Grove suggests that ' Beethoven must have been inspired by the very genius of happiness when he conceived and worked out the many beautiful themes of this joyous composition, and threw in the spirited and graceful features which so adorn them. The work is animated throughout by a youthful exhilaration more akin to that which pervades Mendelssohn's " Italian " Symphony than anything else we can recall-in the Adagio by real passion. Such times were rare in Beethoven's life, and we are fortunate in having so perfect an image of one of them preserved to us.'
The second part of this concert will be broadcast in the Regional programme at 9.20.
Tickets may be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1, Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1, and the usual Agents. Prices : 10s. to 2s.


Conducted By: Eugene Goossens
Unknown: Sir George Grove

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.
