: SYMPHONY CONCERT

BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conducted by Alfred Wallenstein
Among present-day American composers, Samuel Barber is perhaps the most European in style and outlook. His best-known work, the Adagio for strings, originally belonged to an early string quartet. The Overture to The School for Scandal, suggested by Sheridan's comedy, was his first important orchestral composition, written in 1932, when he was twenty-two.
The Suite for string orchestra likewise represents Frank Bridge in one of his earlier phases of development; it dates from 1909-10 and reveals his expert knowledge of the effects to be obtained on stringed instruments.
' La Mer,' the most important work in tonight's concert, is also the most familiar. Completed fifty years ago, this great seascape is not only astonishing in its evocative power; by reason of its breadth of manner and large-scale design it almost takes on the dimensions of a symphony. 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.

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.
