London Philharmonic Orchestra
(Leader, David Wise )
Conductor, Basil Cameron
From the Royal Albert Hall. London
Part 1 ,
The theme of Rachmaninov's Rhapsody is the one used by Brahms for his two sets of variations for piano solo, Op. 35. Rachmaninov gives us twenty-four continuous variations, and an interesting point is that after a brief Introduction the first variation is heard before the statement of the theme. In the course of the work a version of the Dies Irae is introduced. It may not at first be apparent that the wonderfully ingratiating and romantic variation in D flat, which sounds so characteristic of Rachmaninov, is merely an inversion of the Paganini theme, transposed into the major.
When he wrote his Second Symphony, Borodin was also at work on his opera,
Prince Igor; and a great deal of it was undoubtedly inspired by visions of the glories of medieval Russia. Borodin told a friend that in the opening Allegro he was thinking of the gatherings of Russian princes and warriors in the eleventh century. The slow movement recalled the songs of the Slav troubadours, and the finale represented a festival of the heroes of Kiev, held amid the rejoicings of the people. 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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
