Pianoforte Quartet, Op. 47

Schumann's Piano Quartet in E flat was composed in 1843, the same year in which the Piano Quintet appeared. Richard Aldrich points out that this genial and romantic work ' owes its inspiration to the same impulse that urged Schumann to the Quintet ; the method is the same, the technique shows the same manner of approach as well as the same masterly skill ; the cast of thought is similar..... But it deals, on the whole, with a slighter order of ideas ; the flight of its inspiration is not, on the whole, quite so bold or so high. It insinuates its way into the affections of the music-lover rather than imposes itself with the irresistible sweep and energy of the quintet

Debussy's 'L'Apres-midi d'un faune' is a musical interpretation of a poem by the French poet, Stephane Mallarme. It has been said that the poem is so elusive in meaning, so subtle in its refinements of language, that it is practically untranslatable into another tongue. Debussy's is perhaps the only medium suited to an exposition of the poem.
The poem is concerned with a faun who, waking at dawn in the forest, tries to recall what happened to him before he fell asleep. His musings are confused with visions of nymphs who spent the afternoon with him and the possibility that the whole thing has been a dream coloured with the music of his own flute.
Solo pianoforte, POUISHNOFF
Like several other of Russia's most distinguished composers, Glazunov, who died in 1936, had a curious career. In the 'eighties, as a young man, he was the rising hope of the nationalists ; in the 'nineties he came under the influence of Brahms and other Western composers. Until about 1904 he composed prolifically ; after that, during the remaining thirty-two years of his life, he produced only a few comparatively unimportant works (perhaps because his duties as head of the Petersburg Conservatoire left him little leisure).
This Piano Concerto, finished in 1911 and dedicated to Leopold Godowskv. was his last important work. It is in two movements, the second consisting of a theme and nine variations, a form of which Glazunov was a master.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
