: Symphony Concert

(Relayed from the New Pavilion, Bournemouth) Symphony Concert No. 3 of the 35th Winter
Series
THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL AUGMENTED
ORCHESTRA
Conducted by SIR DAN GODFREY Maestoso. Un poco piu lento; Scherzo.
Marcato e staccato; Moderate. Assai. Andante ; Finale. Moderato ma appassiohato THE title of this Concerto makes the composer's intention clear; he means the pianoforte part to be regarded rather as one of the voices in the score than as the customary solo with orchestral accompaniment. As an experienced pianist himself, he knows well how to make use of the instrument's resources, and the result is an effective blend of symphonic music and a briUiant pianoforte part, in which neither handicaps the other, although both are given fullest opportunities. There are four movements, but these are closely united in their thematic material, and the first, the most important, contains in varied forms the nucleus of the three which follow. The second is in light and joyous mood, and the third has something of the atmosphere of an oriental landscape. It is closely bound up with the fourth movement, vivid and dramatic as that is. Near the end it reaches an impressive climax with all the themes welded together.

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.
