: Beethoven

Overture, ' Prometheus,' Op. 43 Symphony, No. 7 in A, Op. 92.
Poco sostenuto, Vivace ; Allegretto ; Presto, Presto meno assai ; Finale, Allegro con brio
THIS Symphony made its appearance first at a concert conducted by Beethoven himself, and consisting entirely of his own works, in Vienna in 1813. The concert was actually organized by Maelzel, remembered now only as the inventor of the metronome, and it included two military marches specially composed by Beethoven for a mechanical instrument of Maelzel's invention, which played them. The Symphony won an immediate success, and the second movement had to be repeated-a tribute but rarely accorded to a symphonic movement on its first appearance.
The Symphony begins, like the second, with a long and elaborate introduction. Beethoven has expanded this with such evident interest and even affection, that it stands out with a great sense of bigness, even among his many big achievements. It leads quite gradually towards the main quick part of the movement, and when it appears it is irresistible in its energy and freshness.
The slow movement, an Allegretto, is built up on a steady march rhythm above which a very beautiful melody is played by the violas and violoncellos together. There is a contrastingly joyous tune in the major played first by the clarinet.
The next movement is in form a Scherzo and Trio, although Beethoven did not call it so. It begins at once with a merry theme, and the tune of the Trio is based, so we are told, on an old pilgrim song which originally came from Austria.
The last movement brims over with wholesome laughter and bustling good spirits. Almost breathless in its haste, it is among the most entirely happy things which Beethoven gave us.

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.
