: A Brahms Programme

Serious and Gay
Conducted by E. GODFREY BROWN
Academic Festival Overture. Op. 80
First Movement from Concerto in D for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 77
THIS Concerto is in the usual three movements. the first being the longest and most elaborate. There is a full-sized introduction by the orchestra in which the main theme is heard at the beginning. There are two other themes, of which the second, by its rhythm, has a big influence on the whole course of the movement. The solo violin, when it enters, has a brilliant passage leading up to the first main theme, which it follows soon afterwards with the second principal tune. It has another broad melody in double notes, and still one other new melody, also in double notes. Towards the eud, in the usual place, there is a great Cadenza for which Joachim is thought to be responsible.


Conducted By: E. Godfrey Brown

Hungarian Dances, Nos. 11 to 1G.... arr. Parlow
BRAHMS' Hungarian Dances must be well known to countless listeners who have very little interest in the rest of his work. He was not a Hungarian himself, but the verve and rhythm of their dances and folk songs interested him keenly all his musical life. And he made use of them in many ways in his own works. It is supposed that his interest in them was first aroused when. e.s a young man, he went on tour with the Hungarian violinist Remenvi, and that may well be true. Remenyi was himself an enthusiast for the folk music of his own country, and played many of the native airs, so that Brahms heard them in all their genuine vigour and charm.
The Hungarian Dances appeared first as pianoforte duets-for two players at the one keyboard, and very soon became so popular all over the world that arrangements of them in all manner of other ways quickly came into being. The great Joachim arranged them for violin, and Piatti for violoncello, with pianoforte accompaniment, and orchestras and military bands everywhere seized on them as splendid additions to the popular repertory.
There can be but few listeners to whatever kind of programme, who have not heard and enjoyed some of them.

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.
