THE first piece of Dvorak's Chamber
Music to make its wny beyond the frontiers of his native Bohemia was the sextet for strings,
'Op. 48, introduced to the rest of Europe by .Toaehim and his colleagues. It did a great deal to spread his fame as n,composer who had something new and vital to tell, and a very fresh and vivid way of telling it. Jean . Becker, lender of 'the Florentine
Quartet, lost no time in asking the composer for more, begging that it might be as truly Slav in character as the sextet : this quartet was Dvorak's compliance with that request, one which it is easy to believe he was happy in making. Alls through, it is the home-loving Bohemian Dvorak who is singing to ns with all the direct simplicity, tho quiet dignity, the mirth and laughter which were his in those happy years of early middle age : its prevailing mood is a frank zest in the beauty and the fun of life. The first movement has two smiling themes, the second of them a polka. The second alone begins with a strain of sadness: it is a Dumka, the Slav lament which Dvorak introduced to concert music. But its middle section dispels' every thought of gloom by the gay dance— furiant—into which tho same theme is transformed. The third is a tender romance, quiet and serene, and the fourth once more makes merry, indulging in the most boisterous spirits. Like the second, it introduces a furiant, the Slav dance which Dvorak's master, Smetana, had already turned to good account in his comic opera, The Bartered Bride. Here, in Dvorak's hands, it i- served up with a flavouring of rich humour.

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.
