The CHARLES WOODHOUSE STRING QUARTET : CHARLES WOODHOUSE (1st Violin), HERBERT KINSEY (2nd Violin), ERNEST YONGE (Viola),

QUARTET
' Kaiser ' (or ' Emperor ') Quartet (Op. 76, No. 3)
Haydn
(1) Quick: (2) Air with variations; (3) Minuet; (4) Very quick
TTAYDN'S Emperor Quartet is so named because its Second Movement consists of a set of Variations upon the Emperor's Hymn, more familiarly known to us as the Austrian Hymn and as Deutschland über Alles. The melody originally belonged to Haydn's native country, Croatia. Haydn made a four-voiced arrangement of it to words that fitted in with the patriotic fervour roused by the wars of 1797, and this arrangement was sung to the Emperor Francis II on his birthday. It was this, and the present String Quartet arrangement, that sent this local popular tune round the musical world.

ONE of Mozart's friends was one Stadler, who was a fine musician.
Among other instruments, Stadler played the Clarinet, and it was for him that Mozart wrote two works with important parts for these instruments-a Concerto and this Ouintet.
The Clarinet was just coming into use in Mozart's days, and he was very fond of it.
In the Quintet, written near the end of his life, he gives it a part more prominent than those allotted to the four Stringed instruments (two Violins, Viola and 'Cello). Perhaps that was done in order to let the clarinettist shine a little a« a ' star ' performer.
The Quintet is in four Movements. which are respectively quick but suave, then slow and placid, next in dance style (the usual Minuet), and lastly debonair and dainty. This last Movement is an Air with five Variations.

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.
