(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent
From the Royal Albert Hall. London
Part 1
Chopin's two Piano Concertos both date from the time when he was winning fame as a youthful virtuoso. The one in F minor, though known as No. 2, was actually the first to be written (in 1829, when he was nineteen). Throughout the work the soloist is in the foreground, the piano-writing being notably elaborate and graceful. Chopin himself said that the slow movement was written ' whilst my thoughts were with my ideal ': his ideal at that time being a young singer, Constantia Gladowska.
'Don Juan ,' written when Strauss was in his early twenties, was one of the first of his symphonic poems. Based as it is on Lenau's version of the story, Don Juan is depicted as an idealist rather than a cynic; he is always seeking perfection in womanhood, but disillusion follows quickly upon possession. At the end disappointment and satiety overwhelm him and he allows himself to be killed in a duel. The exultant opening theme suggests the ardent passion of youth.

: PROMENADE CONCERT

Part 2
Described as a musical tale for children,' ' Peter and the Wolf ' was first performed at a children's concert in Moscow in 1936. Since then it has gained wide popularity, and has been produced as a ballet, both in England and America. The story of Peter's-resourcefulness and the wolf's discomfiture is told by the narrator and illustrated by the orchestra. Each character in the story is represented by an instrument; the bird by a flute, the duck by an oboe, the cat by a clarinet in a low register, the grand-father by a bassoon, and the wolf by three homs. Peter's blithely adventurous theme, which begins the ' musical tale,' is played by the strings. Harold Rutland

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.
