Concerto, Variations on a Nursery Tune Dohnanyi THE tune Dohnanyi has chosen for treatment is that of an old French nursery song, ' Ah, vous diraije, Maman ' (a theme on which Mozart wrote a set of keyboard variations).
There is a portentous Introduction, very fully scored, in amusing contrast to which comes the theme, in bare octaves on the Piano.
Variation I. (A little quicker).-The Strings have the theme, Piano decorating it. Glides for Piano and Harp conclude the section.
Variation II. (Resolute).—Horns have a new martial Theme, Piano and Woodwind answering.
Variation III.—The Piano is very prominent, the Strings taking a modest part.
Variation IV (Moderately quick).—Piano and Woodwind (in octaves) share this.
Variation V. (Quicker).-An imitation of a musical-box. Bits of the nursery song are heard on the bells.
Variation VI. (Still quicker).-The Piano coruscates brilliantly, against Wind arpeggios.
Variation VII. (In strict time).—A Waltz theme appears first on the Piano and then on the Strings. The nursery tune appears for a moment on the Violins in two-time, against the three-time of the dance.
Variation VIII. (Moderately quick).—A March. The Lower Strings and Drums keep up a bass part consisting of the keynote and the fifth above it.
Variation IX. (Very quick).
-Playful, in a minor key.
Variation X. (Not too slow)
-A part of the original tune is repeated in the bass, while the other instruments weave harmonies above it.
Variation XI. (With dignity).
-A hymn-tune-like version of the melody.
Final Section (Quick, spirited).—This is a fugue.
Near the end there is a final statement of the nursery melody, and a gay Coda rounds off the work.

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.
