(violoncello) playing
Concerto in B minor for Violoncello and Orchestra, Op. 104....Dvorák 1 Allegro. 2 Adagio ma non troppo. 3 Allegro moderato with The BBC
Northern Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Barker
Conductor, T. H. Morrison
Dvorak's single 'Cello Concerto was written in the early 'nineties, soon after his return from America, and belongs to the period of the New World' Symphony and the ' Nigger ' Quartet. But there is practically no trace of Negro colouring in the Concerto. As in the ' New World' Symphony, a motto theme dominates the whole work. Here, the motto theme is the first tune of the first movement; it is heard on the clarinets and bassoons, and crops up frequently in this and the succeeding movements.
The Concerto was first played in London in March, 1896, and was then lost sight of for a time. Not only are the possibilities of the solo instrument in this concerto exploited with admirable effect, but the interest is equally distributed between the soloist and the orchestra, quite in the modern manner.

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.
