: An Orchestral Concert

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA
(Leader, FRANK CANTELL)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte)
THERE is a story told of this Concerto, to the effect that Rubinstein suggested it, proposing that he and Saint Saens should appear together as con.; duct or and pianist respectively, in a. concerto by the French master. We are told that only three weeks were available for the composition of the new work, but that Saint-Saēns completed the task triumphantly, well within the allotted time, playing it himself on its first appearance with complete success.
The work bears no traces of hasty workmanship ; it is throughout conceived in that happy spirit which suggests that the ideas flowed swiftly and easily from its composer's thought.
The first movement begins with a brilliant tlourish for the soloist, and the pianoforte has matters largely in its own hands,
The second movement is pretty much in the usual scherzo and trio form, the pianoforte introducing the first vivacious theme almost at the outset.
The last movement is, to all intents and purposes, a brilliant and vivacious Tarantelle; it brings the work to an end in the gayest of bright spirits.

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.
