Conductor, GEORG SZELL from the St. Andrew's Hall,
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 Széll
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.).

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
