In May, 1721, Bach sent the Margrave of Brandenburg a parcel of new compositions, with a courtly letter in French, and an autograph inscription, also in French : ' Six Concertos with various Instruments Dedicated To His Royal Highness Christian Ludwig , Margrave of Brandenburg, etc., etc. by His very humble and very obedient servant, John Sebastian Bach , Master of the Chapel of H.S.H. the reigning prince of. Anhalt-Cothen.'
The No. 3 in G major is the most true to the form of the concerto grosso, for while there is no actual solo part, there is a clear contrast between the passages intended for tutti and those for the solo group. The work is written in nine parts and the concerto effect is gained by the grouping of the instruments. There are two movements connected by a short link that takes the place of the customary slow second movement.
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.
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.
