: Proms on One

The first in a Friday-evening series of outstanding concerts from this year's Proms features some distinguished visitors, the Cleveland Orchestra. Over the last ten years a special rapport has developed between the Clevelanders, now America's most recorded orchestra, and their German conductor
Christoph von Dohnanyi
(grandson of the composer). Tonight they combine to perform one of the classics of the symphonic repertoire,
Beethoven's Fifth. Before that they accompany the baritone Jose van Dam as he sings
Mahler's sublime Ruckert
Lieder, settings of verses by the German romantic poet Friedrich Ruckert.
Presented by James Naughtie.
Dohnanyi was, recently nominated Conductor of the Year by the magazine Musical America for his "outstanding achievements with the Cleveland and his extraordinary contribution to the world of music". In the interval there is a feature on the orchestra's relationship with its local community. Director Bame Gavin
Executive producer Diana Lashmore STEREO

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.
