ALMOST all the smaller orchestral pieces of Mozart's called by many various names, are what the Germans know as ' 'Unterhaltungsmusik '—' Entertainment Music.' Many of them were intended for performance in the open air, which no doubt accounts for the prominent parts given to the winds. Sometimes, depending on the players who were available, a little miniature concerto would make its appearance between the more usual movements, to give the performer in question a specially good innings of his own. But, as a rule, the Divertimenti consist of six movements of which a Minuet and Trio is almost invariably one...
Brahms was engaged on this work for the greater part of the year 1882, and right through the following spring, finishing it in the early summer of 1883 during a stay at Wiesbaden. It was performed for the first time early in December, 1883, by the Philharmonic Orchestra in Vienna, Hans Richter conducting. The symphony was immediately acclaimed by the whole world of music as in every way a worthy successor of the two earlier ones, and has long ago established itself as the most popular of Brahms's four. It is certainly the easiest of the four to understand, and the one which is conceived throughout in the happiest spirit. It is recorded that before its publication, Richter, in the course of a toast which he was proposing at a banquet suggested that it should bo called 'Brahms Eroica. ' To any who remember Wagner s analysis of Beethoven's ' Eroica,' and who know a later description of this Symphony as one ' whose fundamental note is proud strength that rejoices in deeds,' the parallel will not seem without foundation.

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.
