Part I
Mendelssohn's only Violin Concerto was long in the making. He first mentioned it in 1838 to Ferdinand David , then leader of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Concerts, of which Mendelssohn was conductor, and later the first violin virtuoso of his day. David took an interest in it from the first -it was, in fact, written for him-assisted a good deal in shaping the solo part, and introduced it to the public at a Gewandhaus Concert in March, 1845. It was a great success; and a particularly opportune one, for practically no Concertos but those of Spohr were being heard at all. The Beethoven was very little played, Bach was an almost unknown composer except in so far as Mendelssohn was trying to make him known, and the remainder of the present solo violin repertory was for the most part not yet written. And that early success has been confirmed by time; Mendelssohn's concerto is still reckoned as one of the first three or four of the world's greatest.
This is the fifth successive annual performance of Bax's Third Symphony at the Promenades. It has been offered to willing listeners, both in Queen's Hall and out of it, every year from 1930 to 1934 inclusive, and it would now seem to have become a permanent feature of the programmes. This is a little unusual, for Bax did not complete the symphony until a few months before its performance in the 1930 'Proms', and new works of symphonic importance, British or European, do not as a rule achieve immediate popularity, and only rarely retain it undiminished for several conseoutive years. It is therefore not difficult to conclude that Arnold Bax has said something in this symphony that the public is glad to hear.

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.
