: HENRY WOOD PROMENADE CONCERTS

Zara Nelsova (cello)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard)
Conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent
Brahms
Concerto in A minor, for violin. cello, and orchestra
8.17 app. Symphony No. 2. in D
From the Royal Albert Hall , London
After being firm fnends for many years, Brahms and Joachim became estranged about 1880. and it was Brahms' Double Concerto that brought them together again. Written at Thun in Switzerland in the summer of 1887. the Concerto W his last orchestral work, first performed at Cologne in October of that year, with Joachim and Hausmann as the soloists and Brahms himself conducting. '
Brahms' Second Symphony, written ten years before the Double Concerto, was also the means of effecting a reconciliation; this time between the composer and his native city of Hamburg. In 1862 he had been passed over, as a prospective conductor of the Hamburg Philharmonic Society, in favour of his friend Stockhausen; and this rebuff caused him eventually to leave the city and take up residence in Vienna, where his Second Symphony was given for the first time in 1877. But when he conducted the work at Hamburg in the following year, at the fiftieth anniversary of the Philharmonic Society (with Joachim as leader of the orchestra), he was accorded so great an ovation that all past injuries were forgotten. Written at Portschach, a village in Southern Austria, the Symphony (to quote the words of a friend of Brahms) is ' all rippling streams, blue sky, sunshine, and cool green shadows. How beautiful it must be at Portschach!'

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.
