Played by HILDA DEDERICH
Fantasia in C Minor (K. 457)
HERE Mozart just follows the Lent of his fancy wherover it takes him. The work, which is none the less to be admired for all its unorthodoxies, is very wayward in its keys. Those who are interested in these technical things may observe that it starts in C Minor, makes some surprising modulations which lead into a definite, tuneful section in D Major; that this breaks out into a vigorous quick Movement in A. Minor which leads, after a Cadenza, into a gentle B Flat Movement; that the next quick section is ii) no particular key ; and that the opening returns as a Finale.

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.
