Conductor, Ian Whyte
Dvorak
Symphonic Variations on an Original
Theme
Symphony No. 3. in F
The Symphonic Variations were written in 1877, two years after the third symphony. They are based on a theme in folk style from one of Dvorak's own part songs. Like the theme of Eigar'sEnigma Variations, it consists of two contrasted sections, each of great simplicity and easily identifiable character. There are twenty-seven variations in all. In the first three, the theme is heard in its original form, so that we become well acquainted with it: the remainder, free variations. include several based on native folk rhythms, as well as a Scherzo, a Waltz, and a brilliant. Fugue fjr finale. 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.
