Symphony No. 41, in C (Jupiter) by Mozart


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
1. Allegro vivace ; 2. Andante cantabile; 3. Minuetto and Trio; 4. Finale : Molto allegro
Conducted by Sir THOMAS BEECHAM , Bt.
One of the most amazing feats of Mozart's wonderful career of less than thirty-six years was the production within six weeks of three great symphonies, each one of them a masterpiece. Things about him were anything but encouraging for the conception of fine music. He had succeeded Gluck as Master of the Imperial Music (Kapellmeister), but the salary had been cut down by more than half, and Mozart was really hard put to it to find the wherewithal for his household's daily needs. This, apparently, had very little influence on Mozart's creative gifts, and there is much in all these three symphonies that suggests the best of good spirits.
Symphony No. 41 in C was the last of the three, and not only the last, but by common consent the greatest-of all his symphonies. No one knows who gave it the title ' the Jupiter', but the whole world of music has long accepted it as in every way fitting for so great a work.


Conducted By: Sir Thomas Beecham

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.
