Brahms appeared as soloist in his Second Piano Concerto on its first appearance ; that was in the Christmas week of 18,80, in Vienna. Nearly twenty-two years had elapsed since the First Piano Concerto had appeared. The Second Concerto in B flat is the largest and most elaborate of all concertos in the classical form. Each of the four movements is designed on the most spacious lines. The essentially symphonic character of the music and the treatment of the solo piano make this concerto virtually a symphony for orchestra with piano. The slow movement with its exquisite ' conversation ' between the piano and solo 'cello is one of Brahms's most inspired idylls, while the finale, a rondo, is a perfect answer to those who perpetuate the legend that Brahms was incapable of being light in heart and touch.
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.
