Maria Donska (piano)
BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Schumann's Introduction and Allegro appassionato (or Concertstück) was written in 1849 at Kreischa, where he and his family took refuge during the political disturbances in Dresden. The work has been unjustlyneglected in favour of the Piano Concerto, .completed four years earlier. Although certain of its themes may suggest Mendelssohn, who had died shortly before, their treatment, is charactoristic of Schumann; and the work, besides offering opportunities for brilliar.ce on the part of the soloist, has a warmth and an intimate quality that are very ippealing. Tonight's performance takes its place in the present series devoted to Schumann's orchestral works; on November 19 his Third Symphony wail be broadcast. H. R.

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.
