BBC Symphony Orchestra

Piano Concerto No. 4, in G
8.31 app. Symphony No. 8. in F
From the Royal Albert Hall, London (Tickets, from 7s. 6d. to 3s., may be obtained from the Royal Albert Hall and the usual agents)
Unlike the third and fifth piano concertos of Beethoven, No. 4 in G is apt to impress us, not so much by weight and power, as by the more intimate qualities of poetic charm and lyrical fluency. At the opening there is a break with tradition, since it is the soloist who begins the work by quietly enunciating the chief theme, though the orchestra continues it and provides an extended exposition before the piano is heard again. But it is on this theme, with its gently persistent rhythm, that most of the movement is based, including the highly elaborate passage-work given to the soloist. The Andante consists of a remarkable dialogue in which the piano pleads its cause against the stern-voiced strings. But sweetness and light win the day, and the final Rondo steals in with a gaily rhythmical theme, thus confirming the general character of 'the work, which is that of quiet happiness and contentment.

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.
