The F major String Quartet of Schumann is the second of three quartets dedicated to Mendelssohn which Schumann composed in the remarkably short space of five weeks. It is, however, an unequal work, but, as Ernest Walker points out, it rises to great heights in the Variations that form its slow movement ; particularly so in the variation where rich quiet chords melt into one another in deeply expressive harmonies. No more finely imaginative inspiration ever came to Schumann '.
Mendelssohn's chamber music contains some of his best and most fascinating works, notably the Octet in F for strings (composed at the age of sixteen), the Piano Trios in C minor and D minor, and the six String Quartets, which, if unequal in quality of inspiration, contain movements of transparent beauty.
The Quartet No. 1 in E flat is thoroughly representative of Mendelssohn's style, with its richness and beauty of melody, polished workmanship, and clarity of detail and design. In this quartet the usual scherzo movement gives place to the well-known pizzicato Canzonetta which is an irresistible flash of genius.

Aida is one of the most melodious and genial of Verdi's operas. It was commissioned by the Khedive of Egypt who wanted an opera of exceptional splendour to display the resources of his fine theatre at Cairo. Thus Verdi chose a subject that centred round Pharaoh's brilliant court, which was carried out by three collaborators.
In Act I Ramphis, High Priest of the Egyptians, tells Radames that it is decreed that he shall lead the army against the Ethiopians. Radames is deeply in love with Aida, daughter of the Ethiopian king, Amonasro, but now captive at the Egyptian Court. Amneris. the Egyptian Princess, also loves Radames, and finding him indifferent towards her, watches him and Aida. The rest of the act is concerned with the investiture and consecration of Radames as Commander.

Borodin's ' In the Steppes of Central Asia ' was originally written as a musical background to one of a series of historical tableaux vivants shown during the celebrations of the silver jubilee of the Tsar Alexander II in 1880. The music illustrates the following scene : ' The silence of the sandy steppes of Central Asia is interrupted by the first sounds of a peaceful Russian song. Then the melancholy refrain of an Oriental song is heard, and with it the tramp of horses and camels. A caravan escorted by Russian soldiers is crossing the immense desert, fearlessly continuing its long journey under the ' protection of the Russian troops. The caravan proceeds on its way. The songs of the Russians and those of the Asiatics gradually blend together in the same harmony ; their refrains are heard for some time and finally die away in the distance '.

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
