: THE B.B.C. MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, ALFRED CAVE
Conducted by H. FOSTER CLARK
Symphony No. 7, in A, Op. 92
Beethoven
1. Poco sostenuto, vivace; 2. Allegretto; 3. Presto, assai meno presto, presto, assai meno presto, presto; 4. Allegro con brio
Beethoven himself conducted the first performance of the seventh symphony on December 8, 1813. The concert was in aid of wounded Austrian soldiers. In the same programme was the ' Battle Symphony', in which was introduced Maelzel's Mechanical Trumpeter. Playing in the orchestra were many famous musicians and composers. Romberg, Spohr, Mayseder, and Dragonetti were amongst the strings, Hummel and Meyerbeer (who always came in after the beat) played the drums, Moscheles had the cymbals, and Salieri kept time and order in the percussion department. In Austria the symphony scored a great success. In Germany, however, opinions were against it; everybody agreed that the composer must have been in a state of drunkenness during its composition, and Weber considered Beethoven now ripe for the madhouse. London voted it vague, dissonant and too long. But all that was a very long time ago.

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.
