Pianoforte Concerto in A minor
1. Allegro affettuoso; 2. Intermezzo; 3. Allegro vivace
OF Schumann's works in the larger forms, far the finest are those produced from 1841 to
1845. Towards the end of 1840 he and Clara Wieck were happily married, after long suspense and many difficulties, in the course of which Schumann had actually to go to law with his prospective bride's father. His warm-hearted admiration for his wife's gifts as pianist, her devotion to the works which he wrote for her to play, acted and reacted on each other with the happiest results for the whole world of music.
The first movement of this Concerto, composed in 1841, was intended at first to stand alone as a Fantasy. Four years later the other two movements were added to complete the Concerto as we know it now.

ORCHESTRA
Symphony No. 4 in D minor
1. Ziemlich langsam, Lebhaft (attacca) ; 2. Romanze: Ziemlich langsam (attacca) ; 3. Scherzo : Lebhaft (attacea) ; 4. Finale : Lebhaft
THIS symphony was composed very soon after
Schumann's marriage to Clara Wieck , and is really,, in its original form, the second of his big symphonic works of which he wrote three in one year, the B Flat Symphony, the Overture Scherzo and Finale, and this work. The whole of this group is made up of music filled with poetic pictures and singing with the happiness his marriage had brought him. An atmosphere of spring seems to pervade the music; indeed, it was only at the last moment that he thought better of calling the movements of his first symphony ' Spring's Awakening ' and ' Spring's Farewell,' and the whole a ' Spring Symphony,' while this work was first called a ' Symphonic Fantasia.' It seemed almost as though the bare word symphony was too prosaic to fit Schumann's ecstatic mood. Some years after, however, the composer considerably revised the work and it was published among his later compositions. But even now the form of it is unusual. It is planned so that the four movements are linked together to be played right through without a break.

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.
