Symphony No. played by the BBC Symphony Orchestra
Leader, Hugh Maguire
Conducted by Charles Mackerras

Concert given in BBC Studio 1, Maida Vale, London. Requests for tickets to [address removed], enclosing a stamped addressed envelope.

Mahler's Fifth Symphony
Musical history is full of virtuoso performer-composers, but I think Mahler must have been the first virtuoso conductor who was also a great composer. His knowledge of the orchestra as an instrument in the conductor's hands, his sense of the theatrical and the dramatic under concert-hall conditions, and his sure feeling for the natural and effective treatment of every instrument, make every one of his works something for player and conductor to revel in. One feels that every phrase and each of his copious remarks in his scores is the product of personal experience of orchestras.
Mahler first conducted his Fifth Symphony himself and like most of his works it seems to deal, although here not expressly, with Man's striving Dal Inferno at Paradiso. The despairing Funeral March which begins the symphony recurs in the second movement, as Mahler almost attains the heights with his angelic D major trumpets, only to be cast down suddenly into the murky depths of fluttering cellos, basses, and timpani. The scherzo must be the longest and most complex of any symphony; conversely, the slow movement, the Adagietto, is one of Mahler's simplest inspirations.
In this symphony, Mahler's Hero seems really to attain Paradise. He makes out of a few nursery-rhyme-like tunes a huge contrapuntal Rondo-Finale, ending in a triumphant blaze of glory. CHARLES MACKERRAS

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.
