: SCHUBERT

Duo in A, Op. 162 played by Frederick Grinke (violin) and Kendall Taylor (piano)
Schubert's Duo, or Sonata, Op. 162, dates from 1817, the composer's twentieth year. Like the later ' Trout Quintet, it shows him adopting a brilliant style-prevalent in most of his later chamber music with piano—that differentiates it markedly from Beethoven's instrumental works, which otherwise were his favourite models. The Duo is a most attractive work, brimming over with unmistakably Schubertian melody.

: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Boyd Neel
Regarding Handel's Water Music : King George I expressed a wish for a concert to be arranged on the Thames, for which Handel was to supply the music. This was done and the concert was a great success. The river was crowded with barges, and afterwards there was a grand supper at Lord Ranelagh's house at Chelsea, wheft the King commanded it to be repeated once before and once after supper. Each performance took an hour, so that the King did not get back to St. James till half-past four the next morning.
The suite to be heard this afternoon is an arrangement by the late Sir Hamilton Harty of some of the numbers from the complete Water Music.

: DVORAK

Symphony No. 2, in D minor :
'played by the BBC Scottish Orchestra. Conductor, Ian Whyte
Dvorak's Symphony No. 2 in D minor, really the seventh of his symphonies, was composed in 1883-85 for the Royal Philharmonic Society Dvorak came to London to conduct the first performance in April 1885.
It is a magnificent work, a finer achievement than the better-known Fourth and Fifth, (' New World ') Symphonies. It shows Dvorak in a serious mood, and in intellectual power it bears an affinity to the symphonies of Brahms.

Conductor: Ian Whyte








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.
