Ravel's Piano Concerto was written in 1931 and was given its first performance in England by the Royal Philharmonic Society in February, 1932. The music of this concerto is a brilliant piece of writing, which, except for the rather more lyrical slow movement, is for the most part devoid of that sensuous romanticism so characteristic of Ravel in his earlier works.
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.
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
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
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.
