Prince Igor Borodin began the composition of Prince Igor in 1869 ; when he died eighteen years later his masterpiece was still unfinished. Several of the numbers were in a fragmentary state and very little of the opera had been orchestrated ; the Overture had not been put on paper though the composer had frequently played it on the piano to his friends. The completion and orchestration of Prince Igor was undertaken by Rimsky-Korsakov and Glazunov jointly and a legend has come into existence that Glazunov 'wrote out the Overture entirely from memory of the composer's playing. This is not quite true. What Glazunov actually did was to reconstruct the Overture from the given themes ' nearly according to Borodin's plan '.
Kamarinskaya Glinka wrote the orchestral piece ' Kamarinskaya ' on two folk-songs (a bridal song, and a snatch of evpsy dance-melody from which the composition takes its name) in 1848 for the Governor of Warsaw s private orchestra. Glinka was the least self-conscious of geniuses (or almost-genuises). In composing ' Kamarinskaya ' he had no aim deeper than the killing of boredom during an empty winter ; actually, he was laying the foundation stone of Russian symphonic music.

Like Brahms , Dvorak did not venture" upon the difficult task of writing a symphony until he felt sure of his powers. His first three symphonies were composed during the years 1874-5. They show a remarkable maturity of technique and thought and spontaneity of invention.
No. 3 in F is a happily conceived work full of melodic charm and rhythmic vigour. It is dedicated to Hans von Bulow , who, in a letter of thanks to the composer, said : ' A dedication from you who-next to Brahms-are the most God-inspired composer of the day, is a higher distinction than any kind of decoration bestowed by a prince ; I accept this honour with the heartiest thanks '.

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.
