THE STRATTON STRING QUARTET:

(Violoncello)
NOBODY had much chance of patronizing Beethoven-patronizing, that is, in the sense of condescension.' He was a proud, independent soul, fierily resentful of anything like patronage. But though he refused to follow precedent by becoming a Court official, and poured violent scorn on any man who offended him in the slightest (and on a good many who didn't), yet he had many true patrons among the nobility-Princes and Counts who continually helped him, and at whose houses he was frequently a guest.
One of the chief among these was
Prince von Razoumovsky, the Russian Ambassador at Vienna during many years. This nobleman formed a String Quartet which he supported, and which became famous. To him Beethoven, then in his prime, dedicated three of his finest String Quartets, of which this is one.
There are four Movements : (I) Slow (a mysterious Introduction whose long-sustained shifting harmonies hold us in prolonged suspense), then Quick; (2) Rather slow, in a gracious, singing style ; (3) Minuet; (4) Very fast.
IT was after taking part in a performance of this and other Quartets by Mozart with the composer Dittersdorf and a violoncellist friend, that Haydn said to Mozart's father, ' I assure you solemnly and as an honest man that I consider your son to be the greatest composer of whom I have ever heard.'
The Quartet is in four Movements : (1) Slow, then Quick ; (2) Slow, in a singing style ; (3) Minuet; (4) Very quick.

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.
