Beethoven
Overture: Prometheus
7.38 app. Piano Concerto No. 2, in B flat
8.9 app. Symphony No. 3, in E flat
(Eroica)
From the Royal Albert Hall, London
Tickets may be obtained from the Royal Albert Hall or usual agents
Although Beethoven's Piano Concerto in B flat was publ shed as No. 2, it was actually written in 1795, two years before that known as No. 1. It is a work of youthful charm,. clear in design, with a captivating Rondo as finale.
Nothing so massive, and so profound in its significance, had appeared in instrumental music before Beethoven's * Eroica.' Written ' to celebrate the memory of a great man,' it was at first intended to be' a musical portrait of Napoleon, who in the early years of the nineteenth century was regarded by many people as the champion of freedom. The name ' Buonaparte ' was already on the outside page of the symphony when, in 1804, he assumed the title of Emperor. Beethoven's response to the news was to tear the page in half. ' After all, then,' be, said, ' he is nothing but an ordinary mortal. He will trample all the rights of men underfoot, to indulge his ambition, and become a greater tyrant than anyone.' The Symphony, which inevitably reveals Beethoven's own character, is a tremendous musical expression of the heroic spirit of man. Harold Rutland

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.
