Brahms's Piano Quintet in F minor is regarded as his most important early work. It was originally conceived as a string quintet, but after it had been thoroughly tested in that form by Joachim and his colleagues, they explained to Brahms that no five string players could hope to achieve the huge effects which the music clearly demanded. Brahms then rewrote it as a sonata for two pianos, in which form it is still often heard. Finally he adapted it for piano quintet.
The South Place Sunday Concerts
It may truly be said that the South Place concerts have done for chamber music what the Proms have done for orchestral music. Throughout the fifty-one seasons that have been given by the South Place society, the finest artists have been engaged, with the result that the audiences have been able to hear chamber music of all periods under the best conditions.
The South Place Sunday Popular
Concerts began giving first-rate chamber concerts in a dingy hall, formerly the headquarters of the South Place Ethical Society, near Finsbury Circus in the City of London, in 1887-a time when chamber music in England was very little known, except for the Monday ' Pops ' held at the old St. James's Hall. The scene has been shifted to Red Lion Square, but the concerts themselves remain true to the tradition set up by the pioneers.

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.
