Landler Dances. French Divertissement
SCHUBERT wrote a great many dances of various kinds, many of them for his friends to dance to at festive evenings. He was a sociable soul, and delighted to join in such jollifications, being always ready to sit down at the Piano and strike up a tune. The Landler was one of the national dances popular in Austria, Bavaria and the neighbouring parts of Europe. It was a kind of homely waltz, simple and graceful, that often had a vocal accompaniment.
There are among Schubert's duets several ' Divertissements ' or Fantasias on French airs, most of them including some easily-followed varied presentations of the tunes selected for treatment, and all of them providing plenty of fun for the players. It appears that he discovered the airs in a book of manuscript music that he came across while on a visit to a country house in 1818.

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.
