A musical biography in six programmes
4: The Successful Years
Presented by Jane Glover
The London Mozart Players Tamas Vasary (piano) Alan Opie (baritone) David Schofield
Ian Richardson , Robin Bailey By the mid-1780s it seemed as if Mozart's enormous gamble - to leave the safety of court employment and branch out as an independent freelance musician - had paid off.
At the end of the 1784 season he could name 176 subscribers to his concerts and report 'a handsome income'. It was a time of great happiness for him: he was admitted to the Freemasons, his father was reconciled to his in-laws and his sister was married. It was in this period that he wrote two of his greatest piano concertos, K 466 and K 467, and The
Marriage of Figaro, the first of the three superb Italian comic operas with libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte.

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.
