Violin Concerto in A
Minor, Op. 82 Glazounov
GLAZOUNOV is one of t.he comparatively few musicians whose uneventful career has known none of the hardships either of poverty or of the struggle to obtain a hearing which so many of the great masters had to face. Comfortably endowed with the best of the world's blessings, he has enjoyed not only recognition of his work, but the friendship and esteem of distinguished colleagues both at home and abroad. His music is in many ways more like that of the classical models than of his own compatriots, though he has at command when he chooses something of the barbaric gorgeousness, something of the strongly national feeling, which is so marked in the music of Ids countrymen, Rimsky-Korsakov and Borodin, to select two of the best known.
The violin Concerto in A Minor was com. pleted at St. Petersburg in 1904 and published in the following year. It is dedicated to the eminent violinist Leopold Auer. There are three distinct movements of contrasting character, but they follow one another without a break, giving an impression of one movement of changing moods. It opens in moderate time, and the solo violin enters immediately with a broad flowing melody which has a large say in the first section. There are several changes of mood and of time before the actual second movement appears in a slower triple time. The theme of this will be recognized as closely akin to the opening. Striking use is made of the harp in the accompanying figures of this section. Again, here, the movement passes through varying moods, and a brilliant cadenza for the solo instrument leads straight into the lively last movement. The soloist begins it at once with a sprightly figure in double notes, and the movement grows in energy and brilliance to the end.

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.
