IN 1748, the year following the production of Don Giovanni , Mozart wrote his last three great symphonies (E flat, (; minor, and C major) in six weeks. This would have been a remarkable feat if the symphonies had been ordinary in quality, but when they represent the highest achievements of Mozart in this form, remaining today a great landmark in the history of the symphony, it was phenomenal.
The Symphony in E flat is scored for an orchestra consisting of strings, one flute, two horns, two trumpets, and timpani. Although composed about three years before his tragic death and at a time when poverty and ill-health were doing their best to crush his spirit, there is no reflection in the E flat Symphony of his mental tribulation. The music is as happy and gay as anything could be, and if it reflected anything at all it was the youthful and optimistic side of the composer's nature.


Conductor: E. Godfrey Brown

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.
