: A Symphony Concert

Relayed from the Assembly Room, City Hall
(First Performance in Wales)
DVORAK'S Symphony in G, the fourth which he wrote, is less often heard than its more famous successor, ' From the New World,' but it is none the less a very beautiful work, teeming with fine ideas and distinguished by all that felicity of invention and mastery of workmanship characteristic of its composer.
The vigorous opening Allegro has for its main theme a splendidly rhythmical subject, stated, after one or two tentative hints at it, by the full orchestra with fine effect. The second main theme, announced first pianissimo by the strings, is smoother in character, and this is followed by another, the three together furnishing ample material for the composer's purpose.
The second movement is a beautiful Adagio which has something of the spirit of an Elegy in its grave and measured strains, while it is distinguished further by the exceptional felicity of its orchestration.
For the third movement there is a charming Allegretto in place of the usual Scherzo; while a spirited Finale, based on a fine main tuno of a strongly Slavonic cast, brings the whole work to a most vigorous and tell
; ing conclusion.

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.
