The production of Der Freischutz in Berlin on June 18, 1821, marked the birth of romantic opera. Wagner described Weber's masterpiece as the focus of the expression of all German patriotic feeling in the period following the War of Liberation against Napoleon. The overture perfectly sums up the opera, both musically and in general feeling. The magic music of the four horns at the beginning, the restless syncopations that follow, the lovely clarinet melody a little later, and the fire of the triumphant conclusion are familiar to most listeners.
(Solo pianoforte, EGON PETRI )
Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto in C minor enjoys the distinction of being one of the few classical concertos actually written in what is misleadingly known as 'classical concerto form '-presumably because this very work was taken as a model by Hummel, Chopin, and other early nineteenth-century composers.
The largo is one of Beethoven's loveliest first-period slow movements ; the very choice of key-E major after C minor-is a romantic trait, prophetic of the similar feature in the ' Emperor '.
The magnificent rondo, with its particularly striking coda, in no way falls below the level of the two preceding movements.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
