Rachmaninov's Rhapspdy on a Theme of Paganini was begun on July 3, 1934, at the composer's summer retreat on the lake of Lucerne. On August 24 it was completed and in less than seven weeks Rachmaninov was in Philadelphia and with the co-operation of Stokowski his new work had its first reading in the foyer of the Philadelphia Academy of Music. It was first heard in London last March at a Philharmonic Concert under Sir Thomas Beecham with Rachmaninov as soloist. The Rhapsody is in variation form, the theme being the one that Brahms used for his Paganini Variations for piano.
Bax's Symphony No. 3 was composed in 1930 and dedicated to Sir Henry Wood. The music is singularly free from the rather tragic and contemplative moods so characteristic of much of Bax's large-scale compositions. As Robert Hull once pointed out in an article in THE RADIO TIMES' There is not a sad thought to cloud the happiness of these delightful and enchanting pages'.
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.
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.
