It is a curious fact that Mendelssohn complained that the' Italian Symphony', completed in 1831, cost him some of the bitterest moments in his life, and in consequence it was not published until after his death, in 1847. Yet it is one of his finest works, perfect in workmanship and full of melodic charm and vital energy. We may safely conclude ', says Sir Donald Tovey , ' that Mendelssohn's own dissatisfaction with the " Italian Symphony " is rather an objection to the laws of human growth than the recognition of defects that self-criticism and revision can remedy. Certainly in the first three movements every bar and every note is in the right place, except for one tiny oversight in the slow movement which only a mistaken piety would leave uncorrected. As to the finale, no defect is discoverable ; but we can imagine that Mendelssohn could have wished to broaden its design towards the end '.

Although the pupil (for composition ++and organ) of Cesar Franck , Vincent d'Indy ' allowed himself to be influenced only by the more admirable characteristics of his master's art. For instance, d'Indy's musical idiom is singularly free from the chromatic excesses in which Franck indulged. No doubt d'Indy's deep study of mediaeval music gave him that austerity and archaic purity which are not the least refreshing qualities of his musical style. His finest works, if not mystical in feeling, possess what one might term an ' open-air' freshness and vitality, such as his First Symphony, 'The Symphony on a Mountaineer's Song ', and his Second Symphony which appeared nineteen years later in 1905, 'A Summer Day in the Mountains '.

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.
