: BBC Symphony Concerts

(Autumn, 1939). Fifth concert of the series, Part 2
from Colston Hall, Bristol
Solo pianoforte, Moiseiwitsch
The BBC Symphony Orchestra, leader, Paul Beard, conducted by Clarence Raybould

God Save the King

8.4 Moiseiwitsch and Orchestra
Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini, for pianoforte and orchestra - Rachmaninoff

8.27 Orchestra
Variations on an Original Theme (Enigma, Op. 36) - Elgar
Theme (Enigma): Andante. Variations: 1 (C.AE.) L'istesso tempo.
2 (M.D.S.P.) Allegro. 3 (R.T.B.) Alegretto 4 (W.M.B.) Allegro di molto. 5 (R.P.A.) Moderato. 6 (Ysobel) Andantino. 7 (Troyte) Presto. 8 (W.N.) Allegretto. 9 (Nimrod) Adagio. 10 (Dorabella) Intermezzo. 11 (G.R.S.) Allegro di molto. 12 (B.G.N.) Andante. 13 (---) Romanza: Moderato. 14 (E.D.U.) Finale: Allegro

Elgar's Variations on an original theme are dedicated 'To my friends
pictured within,' and consequently each variation is prefaced with the initial or nickname of the friend 'pictured'. Referring to this novel idea, Elgar says: 'It is true that I sketched for their amusement and •mine the idiosyncrasies of fourteen of my
friends, not necessarily musicians, but this is a personal matter, and need not have been mentioned publicly; the Variations should stand simply as a piece of music'

However, as one of Elgar's admirers once pointed out, 'We see these friends of his in the light in which they appeared to Elgar... But, as you cannot make a portrait of anybody without also making a portrait of yourself for the eyes that can see it, the real hero is Elgar himself.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
