Tchaikovsky
Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64
1. Andante-Allegro con anima ; 2. Andante cantabile, con alcuna licenza; 3. Waltz: Allegro moderato; 4. Finale : Andante maestoso—Allegro vivace-Moderato assai e molto maestoso — Presto — Molto meno mosso
Tchaikovsky began his Fifth Symphony in June, 1888, with great difficulty', though ' inspiration seemed to come later', and finished it by the middle of August. Like its predecessor, the Fourth, it is dominated by a motto-theme stated at the very beginning—a theme that savagely interrupts the passionate love-song of the slow movement and falls like a melancholy shadow across the end of the waltz, but which is triumphantly transformed in the finale.
A writer in the musical Press has recently pointed out that this motto-theme appears to have been borrowed from Glinka's opera, A Life for the Tsar, which he was re-studying at the very time he began the Symphony. The clue to the programmatic meaning ' of the motto-theme may therefore possibly. lie in the words to which Glinka's phrase is set: ' Do not turn to sorrow (the hour of our re-union) '.

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.
