Part II
TO hear Stravinsky play the solo pianoforte part in one of his own recent works cannot fail to be an interesting experience even for those who find his music strange and difficult. And this capriccio is full of brilliant effects, exhilarating and very much alive. The name is aptly chosen : in its sudden changes of rhythm and mood the music is indeed capricious, but it preserves so much of the traditional shape of a concerto as to be cast in three movements. They are linked together, not only by following one on another without breaks, but by making use of similar motives, several of, them formed directly of scale or arpeggio passages. Composed in 1929, it has already been played by the composer himself in several of the world's great centres of music. The orchestra employed is unusual: the solo pianoforte is accompanied by full wood-wind, brass, and drums, along with strings in eight parts, a solo quartet, and a main body also in four parts, the violins in each case playing together, instead of being divided into first and second.
THIS work owes its origin to an invitation from the Boston Symphony Orchestra to compose something for its Jubilee. But its form was not specified, and that its use of three Psalms was a spontaneous expression of Stravinsky's own personality may be guessed from the dedication : This symphony, composed to the Glory of God, is dedicated to the Boston Symphony Orchestra on the occasion of its jubilee. The text of the Psalms, from the Vulgate, is sung throughout in Latin, and, despite its being a choral work, it is meant to be heard as a symphony in three movements, following one on another without pause. The first movement, like an i ntroduetion, is a cry from the depths; the second, an elaborate double fugue, is noticeably brighter in spirit, especially where the voices sing ' He hath put a new song in my mouth.' The third movement rises to a triumphant song of exulting praise. There are neither violins nor violas in the orchestra, but, in addition to an unusually large array of winds, a harp and two pianofortes are called on to support the four-part choir.

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.
