: BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Campoli (violin)
Max Bruch, who for many years occupied a distinguished position in German music. was master of a fluent and euphonious style; as Tovey says ' It is not easy to write as beautifully as Max Bruch.' This Violin Concerto, which was composed between 1865 and 1867, seems (unjustly) to have become his sole claim to prominence, at least in England; it is constructed on a plan derived from that of Mendelssohn's famous E minor, in which the ' classical ' ritornello (i.e., the long orchestral passage before the entry of the soloist) is omitted; the scale is therefore not that of the greater works of Beethoven and Brahms, but it is kept within circumscribed, though very firmly defined, 'limits.
The first movement has a preludia! character, even in its active passages, which never create the sense of progressive development typical of a true sonata allegro, and it all leads inevitably to the beautiful slow movement. This serene E flat major section derives something from the slow movement of Beethoven's great F flat Quartet, Op. 127; the finale is a gay and energetic piece with a fine. broad second theme.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
