: EVENING CONCERT

A Concert given by PAST and PRESENT STUDENTS of the ROYAL MANCHESTER COLLEGE OF MUSIC. Relayed from the Milton Hall ANNIE GREGORY (Soprano) MICHAEL COLLINS ('Cello) ETHEL EVA (Soprano)

THOMAS H. MOSLEY (Tenor) MARGARET COLLIER (Soprano)

THIS is shorter than most Concertos, the usual three Movements being condensed into one, which, however, preserves the three sections characteristic of the form.
The first theme, played by the solo instrument, is much used throughout the work.
In the middle section we have a charming miniature in the style of a Minuet, in wluch the 'Cello is accompanied by Muted trings.
TCHAIKOVSKY'S Violin Concerto bears the J- Opus Number 35 (i.e., it is approximately the thirty-fifth work of about eighty in all ; it thus immediately precedes the first of his most famous Symphonies, the Fourth.
The Concerto was written in 1878. It consists of three Movements, but the end of the Second leads straight into the Third.
The First Movement begins with a short Introduction (moderately quick) in which the Solo Violin is silont, but the First Main Tune is hinted at in the Strings.
When the Soloist enters he is left alone for a moment or two ; when he starts the First Main Tune (at a very moderate pace) he is very quietly accompanied by the other Strings (chiefly plucked). The Soloist repeats the First Main Tune an octave higher, with great elaboration. He continues with more and more brilliance, the Whole Orchestra gradually entering and building up something of a climax.
Again the Solo Violin is left alone for a moment, and then introduces the smooth Second Main
Tune.
This lasts some time, and, with the First Main
Tune, forms the basis of a lengthy, elaborate Movement, full of energy and glitter, especially for the Soloist, who at one point has a prolonged, showy Cadenza, or free unaccompanied display passage.
LISZT made innovations in the methods of musical structure, some of which are to be noted in this work. Its Movements are played without break, and the chief themes appear in more than one of the Movements.

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.
