The Pianoforte Concertos of Listz, and in particular No. 1, in E flat, have long been popular alike with artists and with audiences, that it is a little difficult to believe that they were once received with suspicion and even with dislike. The Concerto begins in a quick tempo, but with a majestic bigness, and the whole orchestra plays the first main tune. Then the solo instrument has a section in calmer mood, and the strings play the second chief tune, slower than the first. The pianist repeats this after the orchestra, and a third tune follows, which is played first by flute and afterwards by clarinet. This tune re-appears in the last movement. The second movement follows without a pause ; the chief tune, heralded by the triangle, is set forth by the strings of the orchestra. It is a vivacious movement with an air of real gaiety. Still without a break, the last movement appears, opening with the slow melody which has been heard already. The movement has something of a martial air, animated and energetic. The flute tune from the first movement makes its appearance, too, along with echoes of the previous parts of the work, forming the foundation for a brilliant finish.

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.
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

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.
