Part 1
Myra Hess (piano). BBC Symphony Orchestra (leader, Paul Beard ) : conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
From a concert-hall in the South
Vaughan Williams's Symphony in D, dedicated to Sibelius, is scored for a classical orchestra, with nearly all double-wind. The writing is flowing and smooth and the colouring very delicate. From the point of view of form the first movement is perhaps the finest, but the most expressive is the lovely * Romanza ', which is inscribed with the following words: ' Upon ' that place there stood a Cross and a little below a sepulchre.- Then he said : " He hath given me rest by his sorrow and life .by his death " '. The finale is a passacaglia; contemplative in mood and moderate in tempo. The work is rounded off with a lovely epilogue.


Piano: Myra Hess
Leader: Paul Beard
Conductor: Sir Adrian Boult

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.
