Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Symphony No. 32 in G (K.318)
Symphony No. 3 in E flat (Eroica)
Walter Legge writes of the Mozart Symphony No. S2, in G : This spirited little work is a symphony only in name ; in form and style it is an overture. It was comp'osed on April 26, 1779, in Salzburg and had the distinction of being the only one of Mozart's works for full orchestra to be published in full score during his lifetime. There is no definite information as to the purpose for which this symphony was written. In the nineteenth century it was believed to have been written as an overture for Bianchi's Villanella rapita, but that theory no longer holds water since Bianchi's work was first performed in 1783 and Mozart was not in the habit of writing music for the theatre until the last possible moment. It is far more likely that this was originally intended to be the overture for Mozart's opera Zaide, which we know to have been written in Salzburg in 1779 and for which there is no overture


Conductor: Sir Adrian Boult

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.
