From THE PAVILION, BOURNEMOUTH
SERGEI VASSILIEVICHRACHMANINOV was only nine when he entered the Conservatoire of St. Petersburg as a pianoforte student. Three years later he was transferred to Moscow, leaving it as the winner of the Gold Medal for Composition. He was among the most brilliant pupils, both as composer and as pianist, which that famous school has turned out, and his training was associated with several members of the Russian school whose names are best known to us in this country. Immediately after leaving tho Conservatoire ho embarked on a long concert tour, appearing in all the chief towns in Europe with immediate success. Hn made his first appearance in England at a Philharmonic Concert in London, in 1899, in tho three-fold rôle of pianist, conductor, and composer. For a time he was orchestral conductor at the Imperial Theatre in Moscow, resigning that post in 1906 to go and live in Dresden ; this symphony was composed there. Since tho Russian revolution, however, ho has spent much of his time in the United States. This is tho second of his two symphonies ; it is dedicated to his former master for composition, Taneiev. Modelled pretty closely on the old classic forms, it is none the less definitely modern in expression. There are four movements, the first beginning with a slow introduction which hints at tho themes of the big Allegro to which it leads. The second corresponds to the traditional scherzo and trio, the third is a melodious slow movement, and the last alternates between robust vigour and a more serene mood. It is interrupted once by a reminder of the slow movement.

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.
