: Symphony No. 3, in F..... Brahms

1. Allegro con brio. 2. Andante. 3. Poco allegretto. 4. Allegro Many annotators of Brahms's music have tried to give a literary interpretation of the dramatic and poetic ideas behind the Third Symphony. Richter called it Brahms's ' Eroica ' Symphony, which is an interpretation that has provided several distinguished writers with a romantic theme to develop with varying ingenuity. Curiously enough, if we accept Beethoven's ' Eroica ' Symphony as the norm of the heroic in music we find very little of its character in Brahms's Third Symphony. except perhaps in the very powerful finale.
R. H. Schlauffer , the American biographer and critic of Brahms, points out that if this symphony must be given a label, the most apt would be Portrait '. 'This work', he says, ' might be taken as a portrait in tones of a healthy, strong, turbulent, tender, indomitable, kindly, aggressive, ironic, tempestuous, self-distrustful, incisive, concentrated, modest, fiery, rude, genial man-a person, in fact, just like the one who created it.'
Brahms was all these things ; like most of us he was a mass of contradictions. In short, he expressed in this symphony his own personality and nothing more.

: George Scott-Wood and his Six Swingers

with Frank Kerslake and Sam Costa.
George Scott-Wood, the well-known music director, arranger and pianist, is Britain's foremost authority on the piano-accordion. A Glasgow man, he studied the piano with Miss Hoffman and Crossland Hirst, and finally became Philip Halstead's star pupil. He played Beethoven's third piano concerto with orchestra at St. Andrew's Hall, Glasgow, when he was fifteen, toured in America; became very well known at the Villa Manna, Isle of Man, where he was joint conductor with the late Al Davison and also accompanied such famous artists at Sunday afternoon concerts as Peter Dawson, Bratza, Rosina Buckman, and Dora Labbette.
In October, 1934, he started his Six Swingers as a recording band. They went on the air about eighteen months ago and at once made a name for themselves. They televised on December 5. There's Jock Fleming, trombone, who played trombone with the original Savoy Havana Band; Freddy Gardner, saxophone and clarinet, who has played with Ambrose, Lipton, and Ray Noble; Jock Jacobsen, drummer, who has played at the Carlton, Giro's, the Ritz, and Grosvenor House; Joe Young, guitarist, who has played at the Embassy Club and the Mayfair, the Savoy, and the Berkeley; Harry Owen, trumpet, who has played with Ambrose and is an ex-Army international footballer; and Dick Escott, string bass, who was with Ambrose's original band for five years, and toured with Jack Payne for two years. Six Swingers in the front rank.

: The Violin in Italy

(1650-1750)-4
Works for Two Violins played by JELLY D'ARANYI and ADILA FACHIRI Adila Fachiri (nee d'Aranyi) and her sister, Jelly, are great-nieces of Joachim, the famous violin player and teacher of a generation ago. These two girls were naturally among his pupils, and Adila, the elder of the two, was one of his favourites ; she often appeared in public with him playing violin duets. This practice of duet playing has had its sequel in the occasional and delightful association of the two- sisters in works tor two violins and orchestra by Bach and others, Adila Fachiri has inherited from her great-uncle not only his favourite Strad violin, but his broad, classical manner of playing it, as well as his veneration for the classics.

: A SHORT MID-WEEK SERVICE

Conducted by the Rev. W. H. Elliott
Organist, Reginald Goss-Custard from the Royal Albert Hall
On October 1, 1931, the Rev, W.H. Elliott broadcast the first of his mid-week services from St. Michael's, Chester Square, and to mark the fifth anniversary he asked his listeners if they would like to meet together and to meet him in some place which would hold them all. It is an amazing testimony to his popularity that the response was so great that two meetings are being held in the Royal Albert Hall , one on Tuesday, December 15, and the other tonight.
Doors will open at 7.15. There will be an organ recital by Reginald Goss-Custard on the Royal Albert Hall organ from 7.30 to 7.45. The Royal Air Force Band will play from 7.45 to 8.10, when the meeting begins.
Tonight, after the meeting, the usual mid-week service will be heard for the first time from the Royal Albert Hall.
A note about accommodation arrangements will be found on page 10.

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.
