: A LIGHT SYMPHONY PROGRAMME

THE STATION ORCHESTRA conducted by WARWICK BRAITHWAITE
OF Beethoven's nine Symphonies, the first was written when he was about thirty, and the last when he was about fifty-four. They cover, then. a period of about a quarter of R century of his active working life, and anyone who has heard tho whole series must have realized that they illustrate, in a very striking way. his
, development from simplicity to complexity. His j First symphony now to he heards though on many pages it exhibits quite definitely Beet hoven's own personality, yet in its brevity, clarity and lightness of touch suggests his older contemporaries (and, to some extent, teachers) Haydn and Mozart.
The piece falls into the usual four Movements. A short Slow Introduction leads to a spirited
First Movement.
The Second Movement is delicate, and expressive, in lyrical vein.
The Third shows Beethoven making the older
Minuet into a livelier piece, containing jests and surprises.
The Finale, after its comical attempt to get started, darts off into the gayest of dance-lilts. HERBERT SIMMONDS

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.
