Mark Hambourg (pianoforte)
Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1, in E flat, is one of his most popular works, and, from some points of view, one of his finest. Unlike the three-movement classical concerto, this concerto is in one continuous movement, although there are four definite sections that correspond in style and tempo to the four movements of a symphony. They are, however, far more compact in development and terse in statement. Instead of having different thematic material for each section, Liszt exploits one main theme, which he transforms in various ingenious ways to suit the style of the movement or section. The music is very dramatic, scored with great brilliance, and written with an expert eye for pianistic effect.
Wagner's Kaiser March, which is not, strictly speaking, so much a march as an orchestral poem in honour of the Emperor, was composed in 1871. With .Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, it formed part of the programme with which, on his sixtieth birthday, Wagner celebrated the founding of his own theatre in Bavreuth. The chief tunes used in it are the national song, ' Hail to the Emperor, King William and the Lutheran Hymn, 'A stronghold sure

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.
