: An Orchestral Concert

The Station Augmented Orchestra
Conducted by Warwick Braithwaite
We think of Glazounov as a master of orchestral and piano writing. Here, however, we have a Violin Concerto of his. It is a work of four clearly-defined Movements, but there is no break from start to finish, and the Third Movement is a repetition (altered and cut down) of the First.
First Movement. (At a moderate pace.)
At once the First Main Tune (sweet, expressive) is given out by the Solo Violin, and repeated by Violas and Bassoons while the Soloist adds decorations.
There is little more material in the Movement.
At the end the Soloist is left unaccompanied for a few moments, and leads into the
Second Movement. (Moving steadily.) Once more the Solo Violin gives out the Main Tune, also marked sweet, expressive. After it has been repeated an octave higher, an agitated passage comes. The Woodwind repeat the Main Tune, the Solo Violin trilling above, and soon breaking into elaborations. Soon there follows the
Third Movement. As already noticed, this is a shortened, altered recapitulation of the First Movement. It ends with a florid 'Cadenza', or Solo passage for the Violin, with occasional accompaniment, which leads straight into the
Fourth Movement. (Quick.) The Finale is mainly constructed on the bright tune given out at the outset by Trumpets, on brilliant display in the Solo Violin, and on a graceful time brought in first by the Soloist.

Baba Yaga, that fearsome witch, is a typical, picturesque character of Russian folk-lore.
She rides through the air in a mortar, propelling it with a pestle, and covering her tracks by trailing behind her her witch's broom. When at home, she busily uses the pestle and mortar for pounding human bones.
Liadov wrote this work about twenty years ago.

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.
