plays Glazunov's Piano Concerto in F minor, with the BBC Northern Orchestra: conductor, Charles Groves
Like several other of Russia's most distinguished composers, Glazunov, who died in 1936 had a curious career. In the 'eighties, as a young. man, he was the rising hope of the nationalists; in the 'nineties he came under the influence of Brahms and other Western composers. Until about 1904 he composed prolificacy; after that, during the remaining thirty-two years of his life, he produced only a few comparatively unimportant works. This Piano Concerto, finished in 1911 and dedicated to Leopold Godowsky , was his last important work. It is in two movements, the second consisting of a theme and nine variations, a form of which Glazunov was a master.

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.
