Conducted by Mansel Thomas Beethoven's Coriolanus' has not, as one would at first imagine, anything to do with Shakespeare's play. The author of the drama for which Beethoven wrote the overture was Heinrich Collin, a contemporary dramatist. It is a concert overture and may be considered a forerunner of the symphonic poem, which was later to be developed by Liszt. Beethoven has drawn upon Plutarch's portrait of Coriolanus, and there was much in the character of this Roman to appeal to Beethoven, whose forthright, independent, strong-willed nature was somewhat similar. In this bverture Beethoven has aimed at two things: to render musically, the character of his hero, and to picture the incident of the famous meeting between Coriolanus, his mother, and his wife

Edith Mills (contralto)
John Sterling (pianoforte) Brahms's two Rhapsodies, Op. 79,
No. 1 in B minor and No. 2 in G minor, were written in 1879 and dedicated to Elizabeth von Herzogenberg. When Brahms sent the MSS. to her he wrote: '.Can you suggest a better title than Rhapsody? You cannot suggest a better dedication-that is, if you will allow me to put your dear and honoured name on this trash.'

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.
