ORCHESTRA (50 Performers)

WE are proud to remember that this wonderful work was written to the order of our own Philharmonic Society.
There are four Movements in the Symphony, the last of which is very broken in character, and very dramatic. This, the choral finale, will not be given today.
Of the first three Movements each is in a different way powerful and moving. From the mysterious opening sounds the FIRST MOVEMENT seems to show the Composer face to face with the immensities and problems of life, and in music expressing what could be expressed in no other way.
There follow the Scherzo of boisterous vitality
(with an interlude of charming rustic simplicity), and the song-like, gravely beautiful SLOW MOVEMENT, which, when the work is performed in full, passes without any pause into the LAST MOVEMENT.
SO uncanny was Paganini, both in his Violin-playing and in his weird personal appearance, that people often accused him of being in league with the Devil. Whatever grounds there are or are not for that theory, he seems to have definitely benefited his fellows by revealing new technical possibilities in Violin-playing.
Apparently, ho wrote two complete Concertos, and loft half-a-dozen others unfinished. Of the Concerto in D only one Movement is usually played, in the edition of Wilheknj. It exhibits in full measure the brilliant devices with which Paganini loved to astonish his audiences.

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.
