: SYMPHONY CONCERT

THE STATION ORCHESTRA : Conducted by JOSEPH, LEWIS
BALAKIREF (1837-1910) was, after Glinka, the leader of the Russian ' Nationalist ' Composers who were tremendously active in the middle of last century. They aimed at founding a purely Russian art on folk-material-the songs, dances, religious themes, tales and legends of the common people.
He gathered round him a notable band of comrades-Cui, Borodin, Mussorgsky, and Rimsky-Korsakof, all of them keen nationalists and most of them strikingly original Composers. In later life he lived apart from his friends a good deal, and produced little music.
One of his excellent achievements was the founding, with the help of other musicians, of the Free School of Music in St. Petersburg. Here he gave concerts which served to introduce new Russian works as well as to make the best foreign music better known.
His only Piano Concerto, in three Movements, is a very characteristic work, often developing its brief themes in variation style, rather than in the ' classical ' manner, and showing a delight in detail and at the same time a certain discursiveness that we not infrequently find in Russian music.
HERBERT CAVE
BEETHOVEN'S Second Symphony was first performed in Vienna in 1803, when ho was thirty-three. Even in those days of his young manhood he was suffering from incipient deafness, and from other troubles. Just a few months before he completed this happy work he had been plunged into one of those fits of depression that became more common later, but which ho overcame with magnificent courage, as. he overcame many more trials in his later years.

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.
