Octet in F
Adagio—Allegro—Andante un poco mosso —Scherzo ; Allegro vivace ; Andante with Variations ; Menuetto ; Allegretto-An. danto molto-Allegro
THE Octet has six movements ; the first begins
-L with a slow introduction in which a little figure can be heard which is afterwards prominent in the main, quick body of the movement. The opening of the latter gives out the principal tune at once. The clarinet begins the second movement, an easy-moving piece full of Schubert's melodious charm. Soon after the opening the first violin joins with the clarinet in a duet which the others accompany. The third movement is a scherzo whose merry rhythm runs through the whole of the first section. The middle section, ' Trio,' as it is called, is a quieter, smoother melody, and the merry opening returns. The theme of the fourth movement is like one of Schubert's song melodies, it is followed by seven variations of the tune. The fifth movement is in the same shape as the third, two sections of which first and third are the same, with a contrast between them. It is a lighthearted Minuet. Like the first movement, the last has a slow introduction, and the main quick part of the movement has something of the character of a march.

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.
