BRAHMS
Egon Petri (pianoforte)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
(ninety players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Allegro molto (Serenade No. 1, in D)
8.12 Pianoforte Concerto No. 2, in B flat
1 Allegro non troppo. 2 Allegro appassionato. 3 Andante. 4 Allegretto grazioso
(Solo pianoforte, EGON PETRI)
Brahms appeared as soloist in his Second Piano Concerto on its first appearance ; that was in the Christmas week of 1880, in Vienna. Nearly twenty-two years had elapsed since the First Piano Concerto had appeared. The Second Concerto in B flat is the largest and most elaborate of all concertos in the classical form. Each of the four movements is designed on the most spacious lines. The essentially symphonic character of the music and the treatment of the solo piano make this concerto virtually a symphony for orchestra with piano. The slow movement with its exquisite ' conversation ' between the piano and solo 'cello is one of Brahms's most inspired idylls, while the finale, a rondo, is a perfect answer to those who perpetuate the legend that Brahms was incapable of being light in heart and touch.
9.0 Symphony No. 4, in E minor
1 Allegro non troppo. 2 Andante moderato. 3 Allegro giocoso. 4 Allegro energico e passionato
Despite the fact that Brahms's four symphonies differ from each other both in emotional impulse and in various details of design, they are aesthetically of equal importance and belong to a symphonic style that may be described as romantic thought cast in a classical mould. The Symphony No. 4, in E minor, is as lyrical and romantic in expression as most contemporary music of the time. But whereas so many of Brahms's contemporaries relied a great deal on a resplendent use of orchestral colouring to impress their ideas upon the listener, Brahms with a certain austerity allows the effect of his music to depend on its actual content and not upon its dressing.

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.
