: An Organ Recital

Relayed from First Presbyterian Church, Rosemary Street
Now universally accepted as having been inspired by Dvorak's interest in the Negro melodies of the United States during the short stay which he made there, the New World Symphony was claimed, on its first appearance, by his fellow countrymen as being thoroughly Bohemian, like the rest of his music. Indeed, they suggested that it might be even more so as embodying something of the home-sickness which Dvorak admittedly felt amid the noise and bustle of New York. But whether the tunes are Negro or Bohemian, they are all fine melodies, and the popularity of the Symphony is very easy to understand.
There are four movements. The slow movement has two main tunes, the first played by the English horn, the big brother of the oboe, the second by the clarinet. The clearness of the orchestral texture and the delicacy of the colouring make this movement an admirable medium for transcribing in terms of the organ.

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.
