At Queen's Hall, London

(90 players)
Principal Violin, MARIE WILSON
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Max Bruch (1838-1920) was brought up in a musical family. At the age of fourteen he gained the Mozart Founda tion Scholarship at Frankfurt, where he studied under Ferdinand Hiller and Carl Reinecke. Later he became Professor of Composition at the Berlin Hochschule, and in 1880 he was appointed conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic Society, which post he retained for three years.
Bruch was a fairly prolific composer of every branch of composition, including symphonies, operas, songs, choral music and virtuoso works for the violin. Of the latter, the Violin Concertos No. I in G minor and No. 2 in D minor are perhaps the best known. Although the G minor Concerto is not to be compared for musical worth with such concertos as those of Brahms and Beethoven, the writing for solo violin is brilliantly effective and displays the possibilities of the instrument to the full. The fact that it is still a work that is studied by every violin student clearly shows that it has an important place in the repertoire.

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.
