MOZART'S father early saw the possibilities in so wonderful a son, and made good money out of them. He took young Wolfgang on tour, and one of the places in which the boy composer was a favourite was Milan. It was there that in 1772 Mozart wrote Lucio Silla , his second Opera, set in ancient Rome. He was then sixteen. The work failed to please, and Mozart's operatic connection with Italy was broken.
BACH'S Violin Concertos have only an accompaniment of Strings with, in addition, a part for a Keyboard instrument, which build up the accompanying harmonies from figures written over a single line of bass notes.
The usual plan was to give one main subject to the Soloist and another to the Orchestra, each dealing in a distinctive way with the material entrusted to it.
Bach in these Violin works adopted the Italian model of a three-piece Concerto, including two quick movements and a central slow one.
That style is clearly exemplified in this, his
Second Concerto. The contrast in mood between the irresistibly joyous, open-air First and Last Movements, and the serious, reflective Second Movement, is very great.
WE know Borodin (1834-1887), Doctor of Medicine and Professor of Chemistry, as one of the leading ' Nationalist' composers in nineteenth-century Russia. This powerful Symphony was completed in 1887. It is in four Movements. The First is heroic and somewhat barbaric in style. The Second (very fast) has persistent rhythms and plenty of gay orchestral colour. The Third is quiet and sombrely reflective, and the Fourth (which follows without break) is a continuous flow of high spirits.

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.
