Musical Director, HORACE FELLOWES
Relayed from the Pavilion Gardens, Buxton
THE Symphony received its name because it was written in the town of Linz
(in 1783). Here Mozart stayed with one Count Thun, and gave a concert in the theatre. He writes: 'As I have not a single symphony with me, I am writing one for dear life, to be ready in time.' This Symphony in C may perhaps have been the work he refers to, though that is not certain.
It contains four Movements-the splendidly vigorous and varied First Movement (opening with a short slow Introduction), the gracious, tenderly and deeply romantic Slow Movement, the brisk Minuet, and the enargetic, effortless Finale.


Director: Horace Fellowes

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.
