Solo pianoforte, RAY LEV from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
Although the D minor Symphony appeared in 1851 as No. 4, it was actually sketched soon after the Symphony No. 1. But Schumann withheld it for ten years and then thoroughly revised its construction and orchestration. In a letter Brahms, who after Schumann's death arranged for the publication of the original version, said : ' The original scoring has always delighted me. It is a real pleasure to see anything so bright and spontaneous expressed with corresponding ease and grace. It reminds me (without comparing it in other respects) of Mozart's G minor.... Everything is so absolutely natural that you cannot imagine it different ; there are no harsh colours, no forced effects, and so on.' 3.42 The Swan of Tuonela Sibe/ius
3.53 Pianoforte Concerto, No. 2, in C minor....................... Rachmaninov
1. Moderato. 2. Adagio sostenuto. 3. Allegro scherzando
(Soloist, RAY LEV)
After the failure of his first Symphony in 1897, Rachmanin)v got into such a morbid state of mind that, except for one short period of activity, he was unable to do any creative work. Finally, in January, 1900, Rachmaninov submitted himself to hypnotic treatment and he says : ' Although it may sound incredible, this cure really helped me. Already at the beginning of the summer I began again to compose. The material grew in bulk, and new musical ideas began to stir within me-far more than I needed for my concerto.' This was the Second Piano Concerto in C minor, which a year or two previously he had agreed to write for the London Philharmonic Society.
The music is full of great virility and spontaneous invention. It is interesting to note that the thematic material of the four works written during this period-Suite No. 2 for two Pianos, Piano Concerto in C minor, and the 'Cello Sonata in C minor—are clearly related to each other. It is as if all the themes derive from one basic germ idea.

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.
