Elizabeth Mooney (soprano)
Philharmonic String Quartet:
Charles Bye (violin) ; James Soutter (violin) ; Horace Ayckbourn (viola) ;
Frederick Alexander (violoncello)
Haydn and Dittersdorf were on very intimate terms, for, as the latter tells us in his memoirs, ' whenever we heard a new piece, we went through it carefully together, doing justice to all that was good and criticising what was bad in it '. It is interesting to note that Stephen Storace , the English opera composer, once gave a musical evening while on a visit to Vienna, and one of the chief items was a performance of a quartet of strings which consisted of Haydn (first violin), Dittersdorf , Mozart (viola), and Wanhal
-Of Dittersdorf's numerous string quartets, six were re-issued in 1866. No. 1, in E flat, is a bright, vivacious little work and very characteristic of the composer's style.

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.
