The Pavilion, Bournemouth
THE VIOLONCELLO CONCERTO, Dvorak's only work for this combination, was written in the early 'nineties, soon after his return from America, and belongs to the period of the New World Symphony and the Nigger Quartet. There is, however, in this music practically no trace of Negro colouring. The construction belongs to that convention which uses a motto theme to dominate the whole. Here, the motto theme is the first tune of the first movement ; it is heard on the clarinets and bassoons, and crops up frequently in this and the succeeding movements. The concerto was first played in London in March, 1896, and was then lost sight of for a time. There are few 'cello concertos available; but of a small repertory this is decidedly one of the best, and of recent

Weber's Pianoforte Sonatas
Played by FRANK MANNHEIMER
Sonata in D minor (Op. 49)
1. Allegro feroce; 2. Andante con moto; 3. Rondo: Presto
THE TWO chief contemporaries of Beethoven who brought the sonata to its highest stage of technical development, and at the same time invested it with new and richer possibilities of expression, were Schubert and Weber.
In his four pianoforte sonatas Weber may be decidedly inferior to Beethoven with regard to concentrated effort and constructive mastery, but he almost balanced such defects by his melodic fertility, his sensitive writing for the keyboard, and the warm romantic feeling which is so essentially a characteristic of all Weber's music. Being a brilliant pianist himself, he made full use of the scope of his instrument; consequently, his pianoforte sonatas contain numerous striking and original effects of colour, etc.
Weber's biographer, Spitta, tells us that he played with fiery expression, and : ' Wide stretches, easy to his long, flexible fingers, bold jumps from one part of the keyboard to another, rapid passages of thirds for one hand, or of thirds, sixths, and octaves for both, runs with accompanying chords for the same hand' (first movement of C major Sonata which was heard on Monday), ' 'such are some of his technical resources'.

THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
(Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL )
Conducted by BRUNO WALTER
IN ONE YEAR, 1788, Mozart composed the three last and the three greatest symphonies he was to. write before his death three years later. They were all written within less than two months, the E flat major '(No. 39) being dated June 26, the G minor (No. 40), July 25, and the ' Jupiter ' in 3 (No. 41), August 10. Each is emotionally different, yet all are unmistakably Mozart at his very finest. The E flat Symphony is happiness itself, the ' Jupiter ' all dignity and grace, while of the G minor, Otto Jahn , Mozart's biographer, wrote that it seems to express a sorrow rising ' in a continuous climax to a wild movement, as though seeking to stifle care '. It is as though Mozart had in this triptych deliberately written in terms of music that part of his autobiography which can alone be so expressed.

ORCHESTRA Symphony No. 40, in G minor (K.550) - Mozart 1. Allegro molto; 2. Andante; 3. Minuet : Allegro; 4. Finale: Allegro assai
SERGE PROKOFIEV AND ORCHESTRA Concerto No. 5 - Prokofiev (First Performance in England) I. Allegro con brio; 2. Moderato ben accentuato ; 3. Toccata : Allegro con fuoco ; 4. Larghetto; 5. Vivo, Piu trahquillo : Coda

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.
