: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Conducted by W. K. Stanton
Charles Lynch (pianoforte)
Brahms appeared as soloist in his Second Piano Concerto on its first performance; 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. 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.

This is No. 3 in the new thriller series which originated in the fertile mind of J. E. C. Langham. Most listeners by now will be well prepared for the shock that regularly occurs on the dot of 8.20, and in this evening's programme they will not be disappointed. A ship at sea rolling home from Rio, a fog blowing up, and a ship's concert about to get under way ; here is the setting and here are a few of the ingredients -a great violinist, a jazz-band leader, a pretty crooner, a rich old woman, and a radio message saying: ' Satisfied no crooks aboard'. From this brew, to which are added other ingredients, there will emerge this evening's 'happening' at 8.20!

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
