The last in this series of Henry Wood
Promenade concerts
- features the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Georg Solti in a performance of the Concerto for Orchestra by Bela Bartok Introduced by Richard Baker
The CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA caused a tremendous stir when they visited the Proms in 1978. As part of their return visit, recorded last night, the choice of music could not be more appropriate: this is Bartok's centenary year;
SIR GEORG SOLTY was a student of Bartok's in Budapest, and the Chicago Orchestra has the superb virtuosity that this 20th-century masterpiece requires.
As Bartok himself wrote: 'The title of this' symphony-like orchestral work is explained by its tendency to treat the single instrument or instrument groups in a " concertante " or soloistic manner.'

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.
