Beethoven
Pianoforte concerto No. 3, in C minor
1. Allegro con brio. 2 Largo. 3 Rondo: Motto allegro
(Solo pianoforte, Walter Rummel)
Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.3, in C minor, though still rather Mozartian in manner is far more individual in style than the No.2, in B flat. It points the way to the last two concertos which are highly original in both thought and construction.
The C minor Concerto was composed in 1800, the year that also brought forth the six string quartets, Op.18, the Piano Sonata in B flat, Op.22, and the String Quintet, Op.29. It is a clearly designed work full of charming melodic invention, brilliant piano writing, and fine orchestral effect.
8.S9 Symphony No.6, in F (Pastoral)
1. Allegro ma non troppo (Awakening of cheerful feelings on arriving in the country). 2. Andante molto moto (By the Brook). 3. Allegro (Merry Gathering of Villagers). 4. Allegro (Thunderstorm). 5. Allegretto (Shepherds' song: happy and grateful feelings after the storm)
Beethoven's symphonies in C minor and F (the Pastoral) were completed so near)y at the same time (1807-8) that the latter has from the point of view of pedantic accuracy almost as much right as its twin to be known as 'the Fifth'.
It is significant that each is an enlargement of the formal structure of what had hitherto been known as 'symphony' and that each achieves far more precision of emotional expression than Beethoven (and most of his predecessors) had hitherto attempted in instrumental music.
There had been programme symphonies before - Dittersdorf's, for instance. But they were prose; the 'Pastoral' is poetry.
(Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1, Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1, and the usual Agents. Prices: 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.)

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.
