Rachmaninov has little in common with the Russian nationalist composer and, like Tchaikovsky, is,far more teutonic in outlook. His music is characterised by sweeping and expressive melodies of a romantic kind, vitality of rhythm, and a masterly use of rich orchestral colour, which qualities are to be found in abundance in the E minor Symphony. This fine work was first performed in England at the Leeds Festival in 1910 under the baton of the composer.

: ' SHAKESPEARE'

Shakespeare in his Theatre
G. B. Harrison
Almost endless talks could be planned on Shakespeare's prose, his poetry, the sources of his fertility, his heroes, heroines, villains, clowns, but in these ten talks, beginning tonight, all will be subservient to Shakespeare and the theatre, for which he wrote.... Shakespeare the actor-playwright, who himself donned the motley and knew how to get laughs and how to play on the emotions of his audience.
One of the big features of these talks is the distinguished men and women who are going to give them -among them probably the greatest modern producer of Shakespeare in Granville Barker , one of our greatest Shakespearean actresses in Edith Evans , and Nugent Monck who has kept the torch burning at Norwich.
Tonight in the opening talk
G. B. Harrison is to show what Shakespeare's own theatre was like, who came to see his plays, what the professional standing of his actors was. He will take the line that The Merchant of Venice, Love's Labour's Lost, Othello and the rest would have been very different plays had they been written for any other theatre or audience. He is a well-known authority on Shakespeare, his better known books being the three volumes of the ' Elizabethan
Journals ', while he has worked out Shakespeare's reactions to his own times in ' Shakespeare at Work ', and has written, with Granville Barker , ' Companion to Shakespeare Studies '.

: A RECITAL ,

JOAN COXON (soprano)
VERA MOORE (pianoforte) Brahms's two 'Rhapsodies, Op. 79,
No. 1 in B minor and No. 2 in G minor, were written in 1879 and dedicated to Elizabeth von Herzogenberg. When Brahms sent the MSS. to her he wrote: ' Can you suggest a better title than Rhapsody? You cannot suggest a better dedication-that is, if you will allow me to put your dear and honoured name on this trash.' Elizabeth von Herzogenberg, however, agreed that Rhapsody would perhaps be the best title, ' although the clearly denned form of both pieces seems somewhat at variance with one's conception of a rhapsody.' Billroth, another of Brahms's friends, said: In these two Rhapsodies there remains more of the young, heaven-storming Johannes than in the last works of the mature man.'

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.
