: Shostakovich: Borodin String Quartet

The last of five programmes in BBC2's festival.
For Shostakovich the quartet was an intimate and extraordinarily intense means of expression. Tonight
Michael Berkeley introduces performances of two works which, though separated by 14 years, were both anguished responses to the Second
World War. The Third Quartet was prompted by the devastation of his native Russia; Quartet No 8 was inspired by 'the frightful and senseless destruction' which Shostakovich saw in Dresden. The performances are given by the acclaimed Borodin
String Quartet, two of whom were supervised by Shostakovich himself at the Moscow Conservatoire. Sound GRAHAM HAINES

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
