Overture, 'Manfred'
Byron was eagerly read by the young romantics in Germany, as elsewhere, in the first half of last century, and Schumann was among the poet's most enthusiastic admirers. Manfred appealed to him strongly, and he set some music to it, meant tor the most part to accompany the recitation of the poem. Small parts of it were laid out for singing, and there are some purely orchestral pieces. Schumann's idea was to have it performed on the stage, and it has once or twice been given in that way, notably by Liszt at Weimar. The Overture is considered to be one of the finest of Schumann's orchestral works.
Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 2
The Symphony No. 2, in A minor, is really the composer's fourth Symphony. It was written in 1859, but not published until 1878, and first performed in London by the Royal Philharmonic Society in 1898 under the composer. On this occasion the Scherzo was such a success that it was repeated. The form and style of Saint-Saen's A minor Symphony is essentially classical in conception. It is scored for a small orchestra without trombones and with only two horns.

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.
