Variations on a Theme by Corelli, played by Colin Horsley (piano)
This set of twenty Variations on a Theme by Corelli, written in the summer of 1932 and dedicated to Fritz Kreisler. is one of the most important of the late Sergei Rachmaninoff 's more recent works. Several of the Variations foreshadow others in the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini for piano. and orchestra. The theme is not actually by Corelli but is 'the famous sixteenth-century Portuguese dance tune, known as ' La Folia ', or , ' Folies d'Espagne '. on which Corelli himself wrote a celebrated set of variations. The tune has also been used by Vivaldi, Lully, Pergolesi. Bach. Gretry. and Cherubini.

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
