: CITY OF BIRMINGHAM SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

(Leader, Norris Stanley)
Conductor, Rudolf Schwarz
The numbering of Dvorak's symphonies is extremely confused and bears little relation to the order in which they were written. The so-called Symphony No. 3 in F was in fact the first of the well-known five to be written; but when Dvorak published it, he was already thirty-four and had four symphonies to his credit (all of which are as yet unavailable for general performance). He revised it twelve years later and dedicated it to Hans von Biilow who, in his letter of reply, described Dvorak as ' next to Brahms, 'the most God-gifted composer of the present day.'
It is a delightful work, full of that disarming simplicity which characterises so much of the composer's work. The first movement breathes the spirit of the countryside, making occasional use of the pentatonic scale, which Dvorak is mistakenly supposed to have picked up later in America. The slow movement, also in the pastoral vein, and infused with a gentle melancholy, is followed almost without a break by a typically light-footed scherzo. The turbulent finale, which begins with a struggle between the main key and that of A minor. later recalls the first movement and ends in a blaze of triumph. Deryck Cooke

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.
