: ' FORCES' PROM

Programme of requests from Forces overseas
Piano Concerto No. 2, in B flat (Brahms):Vladimir Horowitz (piano), with the NBC Symphony Orchestra. conducted by Arturo Toscanini. (Gramophone records)
Brahms's Piano Concerto No. 2, in B flat, is one of the comparatively . few works of the composer which were well received at the first performance. Although display provides a very small part of the make-up of this concerto, it is extremely difficult to perform. Like the D minor Piano Concerto, it is more a symphony for orchestra and piano obbligato than a concerto in the accepted sense of the term. It is certainly one of Brahms's most beautiful works.
The slow' movement particularly. which is for the most part a deeply expressive dialogue between solo piano and solo cello, is of outstanding beauty. The finale gives the lie to those who contend that Brahms was unable to be light, airy, and gay.

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.
