: A Programme of GRAMOPHONE RECORDS

New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Toscanini : Scherzo (A Midsummer Night's Dream) (Mendelssohn)
Halle Orchestra, conducted by Sir
Hamilton Harty : Italian Symphony (No. 4 in A) (Mendelssohn)—1 Allegro vivace. 2 Andante con moto. 3 Con moto moderato. 4 Saltarello
It is a curious fact that Mendelssohn complained that the ' Italian ' Symphony, completed in 1831, cost him some of the bitterest moments in his life, and in consequence it was not published until after his death, in 1847. Yet it is one of his finest works, perfect in workmanship and full of melodic charm and vital energy. We may ' safely conclude ', says Sir Donald Tovey , ' that Mendelssohn's own dissatisfaction with the " Italian Symphony " is rather an objection to the laws of human growth than the recognition of defects that self-criticism and revision can remedy. Certainly in the first three movements every bar and every note is in the right place, except for one tiny oversight in the slow movement which only a mistaken piety would leave uncorrected... As to the finale, no defect is discoverable ; but we can imagine that Mendelssohn could have wished to broaden its design towards the end '. Despite the excellence of this last movement, Mendelssohn had intended to revise it.

Fraser-Simson's ballet The Nightingale and the Rose was inspired by Oscar Wilde 's story of the same title, which tells of the little nightingale who, by singing until the rose-thorn pierces his breast, makes a red rose for his friend, the student, to present to his lady-all too late, for the lady has found a lover with silver buckles on his shoes.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
