: ORCHESTRAL CONCERT (Continued).

ONE of Brahms's most intimate friends was the great violinist Joachim.
This Violin Concerto, the only one Brahms ever wrote, was dedicated to him, and Joachim, besides taking a great interest in its composition, and advising about some points of fiddle writing, himself wrote the cadenzas for it.
ORCHESTRA
Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks Richard Strauss TILL EULENSPIEGEL is, of course, the legendary highspirited joker of the thirteenth century, well enough known in this country since Queen Elizabeth's days as Till Owlglass.
In a Prologue Strauss presents two aspects of Till. The Violins speak of his pensive, gentler side, and the Horn, in its capricious, bounding tune, tells us of his roguishness.
His adventures include a mad ride through the market place, upsetting, everything, then a masquerade as a monk (m which guise he preaches a mock sermon) ; next he falls in love, and after that ' pulls the legs' of a lot of dry old pedants. When he tires of them, he goe3 off whistling a jaunty street song.
A high moment is reached when the whole Orchestra gives forth the second Till theme, slowly and majestically : ' 'Till at the height of his glory.'
But at the last Till is arrested and tried. His protests of innocence are useless. He is hanged. (Trombone drop, Clarinet shriek, and Flute trill.)
Last comes the Epilogue, with its mingled thoughts of wistfulness and gentle smiles. After all, we muse, he was an ingrati ating rogue, with some thing lovable in him.

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.
