MOZART STRING QUARTETS
Played by THE
INTERNATlONAL STRING Quartet
IT was only after a second visit to Italy that the young Mozart heard any of the string quartets of the older master, Haydn. That impressed him profoundly, and set him so energetically to Quartet composing that in the month of August, 1773, he produced no fewer than six. In speaking of tthem he always referred to Haydn as his great master in that part of his work. For nine years after that he deserted the form, but returned to it in 1782, the year which saw the successful production of his merry opera, It Seraglio, the Haffner Serenade , and other joyously melodious music. It was in the same year that he married Constanze Weber , a somewhat rash proceeding, as the young couple had practically nothing on which to begin housekeeping. Friends were nearly always ready to come to their assistance, but they were always in difficulties. From then until 1790, he composed String Quartets only intermittently, and the last ones are rightly held in warm affection as among the very best of his music. Three of them were specially composed for the King of Prussia, who acknowledged them not only with a kind personal letter, but with a gift of a gold snuff-box and a sum of money. These three all have specially interesting violoncello parts, out of compliment to his Majesty. But all the String Quartets are so full of Mozart's grace and charm, so rich in melodies, almost any one of which might be chosen to represent him at his bSst, that their unfading popularity is!easy to understand.

: CHINA

IX, ' China Today-II, Chinese Nationalism : What it Means,' by Dr. W. T. CHEN
THE startling suddenness with which, in educational matters, China of today has shaken off the old methods and adopted the new is one of the wonder-stories of modern civilization. It is the study of this transition that occupies the talk today. Among the several aspects of the question covered are the increased facilities in education for women, the unification of dialects out of the written and spoken language, the popular education movement, and the schools and colleges of China as they exist today.

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.
