: HENRY WOOD PROMENADE CONCERTS

Richard Farrell (piano)
London Philharmonic Orchestra
(Leader, Andrew Cooper )
Conducted by Basil Cameron
Brahms-Dvorak
From the Royal Albert Hall, London Tickets may be obtained from the Royal Albert Hall or usual agents
The atmosphere of the opening movement of Brahms' First Piano Concerto is tempestuous and even violent. It first took shape as part of a symphony, written during the tragic last years of Schumann's life, when Brahms must have been torn between his devotion to the master to whom he owed so much and his love for Clara Schumann. The Adagio, composed some two years later, was intended to be a portrait of Clara. A robust and lively Rondo forms the finale. The Concerto was first performed at Hanover in 1859, when Brahms was the soloist and Joachim the conductor.
Richard Farrell , the soloist tonight, is a young New Zealander who is playing at a Promenade Concert for the first time. When he was seventeen he won an important pnze offered by the Australian Broadcasting Commission; and after further study with Olga Samaroff in New York he undertook extensive tours in Australia, New Zealand, and America.

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.
