Glasgow Schumann's C major Symphony is really his Third Symphony. It was wrongly numbered because the Second Symphony was published last of all. The composer's biographer, Wasielewsky, tells us that Schumann said of this work: 'I sketched it when I was in a condition of great physical suffering ; I may say it was, as it were, the resistance of the spirit which has here visibly influenced me. I sought to contend with my bodily state. The first movement is full of this contest, and is in its character very freakish and contumacious.' The introduction to the first movement brings in several of the themes to be used later in the work. The opening theme on the brass is a kind of ' motto ' that will be heard many times in the subsequent movements.
Georg Szell studied at the Vienna Conservatoire and has had a distinguished career in Germany as conductor, pianist, and composer. For two years he was assistant conductor under Richard Strauss at the Berlin Royal Opera, and on Strauss's recommendation he succeeded Klemperer at the Strasburg Municipal Theatre, when scarcely twenty years of age. From 1924-29 Szell was principal conductor at the Berlin State Opera and taught at the State Academy of Music. He has also appeared frequently with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra (U.S.A.).

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.
