Debussy's ' Petite Suite ' was originally composed, about a dozen years before the ' Nocturnes ', as a duet for piano (four hands), the medium to which Schubert was so much attracted, and to which many composers after him have been drawn at least once in their career. It was, for instance, the original form of Ravel's popular ' Mother Goose' Suite, which he afterwards expanded into a ballet.
The ' Petite Suite ' was first played by the composer with Jacques Durand , a son of his publisher, who had been a fellow student with him.
It was the latter who made the piano solo transcription which is in general use, but the orchestral version is the work of Henri Biisser , a prix de Rome of 1893, who is known as a composer of several operas and a ballet.

Variations on a Theme of Haydn
(Corale St. Antonii)
Thema: Andante. Var. 1 Poco piu animato. 2 Più vivace. 3 Con moto. 4 Andante con moto. 5 Vivace. 6 Vivace. 7 Grazioso. 8 Presto non troppo. Finale: Andante alla breve
In November, 1870, Brahms's friend, C. F. Pohl , author of the great standard biography of Haydn, showed him a curious and little-known work by the eighteenth-century master: a Feldpartita in B flat written in the 1780's for Prince Esterhazy's military band. It is scored for two oboes, two horns, three bassoons, and serpent. Brahms was immediately impressed by the work ; he copied into a note-book the second movement, entitled ' Chorale St. Antonii '. But the variations by which he made that Chorale one of the world's best-known melodies were not written till the summer of 1873. 8.20 Violin Concerto in D
1 Allegro non troppo. 2 Adagio. 3 Allegro giocoso, ma non troppo vivace
(Solo violin, TELMANYI)
Brahms's Violin Concerto in D is one of the three or four greatest concertos written for the instrument. It was composed in 1878 when Brahms was forty-five years of age. The first performance took place at a Gewandhaus Concert at Leipzig on January 1, 1879, with Joachim as soloist and Brahms as conductor. Seven weeks later, Joachim played the concerto at the Crystal Palace with great success.
Joachim had much to do with the fashioning of the solo part, for while Brahms was writing it, he was continually asking for Joachim's expert advice on the most effective way of laying out certain passages from the technical point of view of the virtuoso.
9.1 Symphony No. 3, in F
1 Allegro con brio. 2 Andante. 3 Poco allegretto. 4 Allegro
R. H. Schlauffer , the American biographer and critic of Brahms, points out that if Brahms's Symphony No. 3, in F, must be given a label, the most apt would be ' Portrait'. ' his work ', he says, ' might be taken as a portrait in tones of a healthy, strong, turbulent, tender, indomitable, kindly, aggressive, ironic, tempestuous, self-distrustful, incisive, concentrated, modest, fiery, rude, genial man-a person, in fact, just like the one who created it.' Brahms was all these things; like most of us, he was a mass of contradictions. In short, he expressed in this symphony his own personality and nothing more.

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.
