: Interpretations on Record

Perhaps the most demanding piano concerto in the repertoire, Brahms's Piano Concerto No 2 was aptly described as "a symphony, with piano obbligato". Jeremy Siepmann discusses the problems for both soloist and conductor and draws on performances ranging over 75 years, from the 1929 Rubinstein/
Coates recording to that by Kovacevich and Wolfgang Sawallisch , to be released next month. He also looks at performances by Bachauer and Ousset, among the very few women pianists ever to have recorded the work.

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
