Relayed from
The Winter Garden, Eastbourne
Overture, Im Fruhling (In Spring)
Symphony No. 4, in E flat ..
Glazounov I. Andante , Allegro moderato ; 2. Scherzo ; 3. Andante, Allegro
Concerto No. 2, in C minor
RACHMANlNOV'S Second Pianoforte Concerto, which by many of his admirers is considered his finest composition, has held its place in the repertory for more than thirty years, and now no pianist of any reputation can afford to exclude it from his repertory. At the time he was writing it Rachmaninov seemed to be more than usually inspired, and more ideas and thematic inventions came to him than he could find use for in the Concerto; so for that work he chose the best of them. But that there should be no waste of good material, he hastened to get these surplus ideas fixed into various compositions of different kinds. This goes to explain how it is that nearly all his works of a certain period seemed to show a striking resemblance, both in treatment of material and similarity of themes.

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.
