THIS is one of a set of Concertos edited by Dr.
Arne's son Michael, and published after the great man's death. No one can say for certain when they were written, but Julian Herbage , who has done so much in rediscovering forgotten works of Arne's, and to whom we owe the transcription of this work, among others, thinks it must have been about 1750. He has adhered to the original orchestration, a very simple one, consisting only of two oboes and four string parts. The Concerto begins with a broad, dignified Largo, in which the attentive listener will notice as its most striking feature a progression of three chords, more than once repeated.
The Allegro, which follows without a break, is very simple and straightforward; there is only one principal theme, which is elaborated to form the basis of the whole movement.
The Adagio is unusual in this way, that it is very short and for pianoforte solo throughout.
The last movement, not quite a rondo in form, nor yet wholly on the principle of an air with variations, but combining something of both, runs along merrily and at brisk speed which never slackens. At two or three points the pianoforte has unaccompanied solo passages, in each of which a busy semiquaver figure has a large share.

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.
