: The Saturday Concert BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

(Leader, Reginald Stead )
Conductor, John Hopkins
John Hunt (piano)
In May 1821, Weber left Dresden for Berlin to conduct the first performance of his newly-completed opera Der Freischulz. The production was due to take place on June 18; on the morning of that day he put the finishing touches to his Concertstuck for piano and orchestra and played it over to his wife, Caroline, and his pupil, Julius Benedict. A week later, the opera having been received with great enthusiasm, Weber gave a farewell concert in which he appeared as soloist in the Concertstuck. (He was one of the most brilliant pianists of his time and had already two piano concertos to his credit.) The work is in four linked sections: Larghetto affeltuoso, Allegro passionato. Tempo di marcia, and Rondo giojoso. 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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
