Toeschi was an Italian born in 1722 who settled in Germany. He studied at Mannheim under the famous composer and violinist Stamitz, and became a violinist in the Mannheim
Orchestra, of which he later succeeded Stamitz as Konzertmeister.
He composed music of all kinds, including many symphonies.
The Symphony in D opens with a lively Allegro, followed by a graceful Andante which consists of an original duet between first and second violins. The finale contains some brilliant writing for the violin, clearly showing the composer's admiration for his own instrument.

Symphony in F minor, Op. 12
Richard Strauss
1 Allegro ma non troppo un poco maestoso. 2 Scherzo. 3 Andante cantabile. 4 Finale : Allegro assai, molto appassionato
(First broadcast performance)
Strauss's Symphony in F minor was written during the years 1883-4. Although an interesting and well-constructed work, it gives but small indication of the future development of the composer. Summing up Strauss's works of this period, including the symphony, Ernest Newman points out that ' there is often a good deal of ardour in the writing, but it is the ardour of the intellect rather than of the emotions. Though he is sometimes dry, he is scarcely ever dull ; the dryness is a personal tang; it suggests a sinewy young athlete's joy in his own energizing and in his freedom from anything like excess of feeling '.

: FROM PUTNEY TO MORTLAKE'

A recorded programme on the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, past and present
Devised by George Drinkwater and Jack Inglis
This programme traces the history of the historic race between Oxford and Cambridge on the Thames, from the first race rowed in 1829 down to the present day: Cambridge having won 47 and Oxford 41.
By means of records listeners will hear Lord Desborough, who rowed for Oxford in 1877, describing the famous dead heat of that year ; Harcourt Gold, who stroked Oxford in 1896, describing the only time that Oxford, or either boat. won after being behind at Barnes Bridge ; R. C. Bourne , who was the Oxford stroke in 1912, speaking of the race in which both boats sank-Oxford eventually winning the race, which was rowed again ; and F. I. Pitman , who rowed for Cambridge in 1886, speaking of the sensational race when Hammersmith Bridge was being rebuilt and it was believed that it was not possible for the two boats to go through at the same time with- . out crashing. Actually both did, with a matter of inches to spare.
Finally listeners will hear records covering the practice for this year's race, to be rowed and broadcast tomorrow.

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.
