TCHAIKOVSKY'S violin concerto was originally dedicated to Auer, but he showed so little interest in it that it was left to Adolf Brodsky to make the work known.
One inter3sting thing about the Concerto is that though Tchaikovsky himself liked the work as a whole when it was finished, feeling that it ought to be successful, the original slow movement seemed to him less satisfactory than the other two. He accordingly destroyed it and wrote instead the one which we now know. It begins with a short prelude on the woodwinds, and then the soloist plays the first big theme, a fine broad melody in Tchaikovsky's vein of quiet melancholy. It has a fine and beautifully orchestrated accompaniment, not less interesting than the melody itself. The second theme is another flowing tune given to the solo violin; unlike the first, which begins with an upward movement, this one opens with a downward flow.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
