Leeds Festival Concert

Conducted by Sir THOMAS BEECHAM
THIS Symphony is called the ' Rhenish ' because Schumann used to say that the first impulse towards its composition came from his first sight of the Cathedral of Cologne, and that this impulse was strengthened by his presence there at the grand ceremonial of the installation of the Archbishop as Cardinal.
There are, unusually, five Movements.
FIRST MOVEMENT. (Lively.) This is even fiery in places. The two main tunes are the Vigorous one with which the piece begins and a charming quiet one, a little later, introduced by the Woodwind and some of the lower Strings.
SECOND MOVEMENT. (In moderate time.) A kind of Minuet, with, at the opening, the tune in some of the bass instruments ; this is varied in different ways, and then, for a change, we have another Minuet, followed by the first one again.
THIRD MOVEMENT. A dreamy sort of ' song without words.'
FOURTH MOVEMENT. This solemn Movement represents the impressions made upon the mind of the composer by the cathedral ceremony mentioned above. The full orchestra is used. all the more effectively after the reduction of the last Movement, and the solemn Trombones enter for the first time in the Symphony.
FIFTH MOVEMENT. (Lively.) The spirit here embodied is that of a Rhenish popular festival.

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.
