Pianoforte Concerto No. 1, in B Flat Minor
1. Allegro non troppo e molto maestoso ; 2. Andante semplice; 3. Allegro con fuoco
T CHAIKOVSKY wrote this concerto for Nicholas Rubinstein , a very fine pianist, though somewhat overshadowed by his more famous brother, Anton. Rubinstein appears to have taken Tchaikovsky under his wing, and during the composition of the concerto rather expected Tchaikovsky to come and seek his advice as to how to write for the piano. Nothing of the sort happened, so that when Rubinstein was presented with the finished manuscript, lie abused it mercilessly. Cruelly hurt, Tchaikovsky altered the dedication from Rubinstein to von Biilow, who thought very highly of it and at once put the work into his programmes. The music starts off with a theme having a tremendous sweep; it is the brilliant keynote of this very brilliant work. In the second movement there is a dainty little tune taken from a French chansonette. The Finale opens and closes with a kind of Cossack dance with a piano part that taxes to the utmost the resources of the virtuoso.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
