ORCHESTRA
Suite No. 4, in D, for three Oboes, Bassoon, three
Trumpets, Drums, and Strings
The Suite, of which Bach wrote four examples, was a form used much in his day and served the same purposes as did the symphony in later times. It was usually made up of an overture and several movements based on the dance forms of the period. This Fourth Suite of Bach contains the customary number of stately dance tunes.

Concerto No. 2, in C, for two Pianofortes and Strings
1. Allegro ; 2. Adagio ovvero Largo; 3. Fuga ; 4. Allegro
The form of the modern pianoforte Concerto owes much to Bach and may be said practically to derive from him. He was one of the first to realise the character of the instrument-in this case the klavier-as suitable for solo and bravura passages to stand out from the remaining instruments of an orchestral combination. His conception of the separate movements anticipated the orthodox construction of all the concertos which were to follow his, and the shape of his work is almost indistinguishable from those of a later date. He wrote a large number of concertos for various solo instruments, and the preponderating vivacity of the music, particularly in the quick movements, is such that one feels sure that Bach enjoyed writing them. In the piano concertos he probably took a solo part himself on occasions.

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.
