Berlioz had a white-hot imagination always ready to pour out brilliant ideas in the most grandiloquent way. Add to that the fact that he had at his finger-tips an amazing knowledge of orchestration, and you may well expect that in this picture of A Roman Carnival in the sixteenth century he will make you see the gorgeous affair as vividly as he himself did when he wrote the overture.

In this rather formidable title Vaughan Williams apparently indicates that his Concerto for solo Violin and Strings has much in common with the less elaborate Concertos of Bach's days, in which the Orchestra is contrasted with the soloist rather than used as a mere accompaniment, as in later Concertos.
This Concerto Accademico is written in three separate Movements.
The First Movement begins 'Quickly, heavily' with a vigorous tune in the Orchestra, a tune which contains a good deal of the chief material of the Movement, and to some extent of the whole work.
The Second Movement is slow, and is thought by some people to give us Vaughan Williams at his best.
The Third Movement is a rapid, bustling piece, in which we hear more than one clear-cut, energetic tune.

No one has pictured the calm and tranquil moods of nature more beautifully than
Delius. Here is one of his impressions, fully scored and containing charming variety of mood. The work, which is dedicated to the Composer's wife, is headed by a quotation from D. G. Rossetti that gives us the thought behind the music:
'All are my blooms; and all sweet blooms of love
To thee I gave while Spring and Summer sang'.

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.
