Tchaikovsky Concert
Part I
Overture Fantasia, Hamlet
In 1887, Tchaikovsky started n big orchestral Fantasia-Overture on the subject of Hamlet; he finished it in the following year. It is dedicated to Grieg.
This Overture may be taken as a psychological study of Ham!et, with his various moods of brooding sorrow, passion (and madness ?), and of ' the gentle, distraught Ophelia ', rather than as following closely the plot of the drama.
Pianoforte Concerto No. I, in B flat minor
I. Allegro non troppo e molto maestoso; 2. Andante semplice; 3. Allegro con fuoco
(Solo pianoforte, CLIFFORD CURZON)
Symphony No. 4, in F minor
1. Andante sostenuto, moderato con anima
2. Andante in modo di canzona
3. Scherzo : Pizzicato ostinato 4. Finale: Allegro con fuoco
Tchaikovsky tells us that the theme begins with a reiterated note in an insistent rhythm symbolising Kate, the inevitable force that checks our aspirations towards happiness. The main body of the first movement, in particular, expresses this overpowering force and man's submission and grief. The sense of despair .grows in strength and poignancy until the writer turns from reality to lose himself in dreams. But the theme of Fate from the beginning is heard again, and the music means that life is, after all, but a continual strugg!e between the bitterness of truth and the fugitive dreams of happiness.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
