Overture di Ballo Sullivan New World Symphony
Dvorak
Adagio — allegretto molto; Largo ; Scherzo ; Allegro con fuoco
THIS, much the best-
JL known of Dvorak's
Symphonies, has had a large share in making him the popular composer he undoubtedly is. In its original form, for orchestra, and in arrangements and transcriptions of many kinds, much of it is so well known as to be heard almost daily.
There are four movements, the first beginning with a short, slow introduction, and proceeding to a quick section in the usual way, with two chief themes, both characterized by strong virile rhythm.
The slow movement has also two main tunes, the first played by the English Horn, the big brother of the oboe, the second by the clarinet.
The Scherzo, which follows, is so full of tunes that instead of the customary repetitions, we have here fresh material. It is full of gaiety and bright spirits, and at the end there is a little reminder of the first movement.
This is true of the last movement also, snatches of the other movements making their way into it here and there. But, like the first, it has two main tunes, both making their effect largely by vivid rhytlmi.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
