Anthony Pini (cello)

(Leader, David Wise)
Conducted by Basil Cameron
From the Royal Albert Hall, London (Tickets may be obtained from the Royal Albert Hall or usual agents)
Is it, one wonders, the 'proud full sail' of the great tune in the finale that has gained for Sibelius's Second Symphony an especial popularity? But there are other attractive features. In the opening movement the listener may take delight, not only in, its pastoral-like character, but in the way the several strands of the music are transformed and take their place in the general design. The slow movement, after a phantom-like beginning, has a tender episode in F sharp. There is also a ravishing oboe melody in the middle section of the fast-moving Scherzo; this is heard again before the music grows in intensity and the way is prepared for the resplendent pageantry of the finale, which succeeds without a break. (Harold Rutland)

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.
