: The Music of Haydn and Mozart

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM Studio AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA
(Leader, FRANK CANTELL)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS

THE Serenades of Mozart are among the pleasantest light diversions in all music.
They each contain a number of Movements, such as could be played at intervals in a banquet or other social event.
This 'Nocturne Serenade,' as it is called, is scored for two little orchestral groups, one consisting of principal Strings, and the other of Violins, Violas, Violoncellos, and Kettledrums. The first group acts as a solo body, giving out the tunes.
There are three Movements, a March, a Minuet, and a Rondo. The chief episodes of the Rondo are in moods quite different from that of the main tune of the Movement.

ONLY a few months before his death Mozart wrote a Concerto for his friend Stadler, a fine player of the Clarinet, for whom, two years before, he had written a Quintet, with a prominent part for his instrument.
There are the usual three Movements, the first and last abounding in vitality and resource, and the middle (slow) one in particular containing some lovely decorative work for the soloist.

WHEN Haydn was about twenty-seven he became 'Director of Music and Chamber Composer' to a Count Morzin, who had a little band of his own. For this band, during the next year or two, Haydn wrote a number of works, 'Divertimentos' and Symphonies. Among the latter are several known by titles - 'Le Matin,' 'Le Midi,' and 'Le Soir.'
In the last of these we observe tho contrasts of character that distinguish the Movements, the careful elaboration that represents tho classical ideal, and the unforced flow of simple, apt ideas that we recognise as the signature of Haydn.

MOZART'S sparkling little work is one of the lesser known Symphonies. It is supposed to have been composed at Salzburg in 1773 - in which year Mozart wrote a Mass, four Symphonies, six String Quartets, and several other things! The work is rather unusual in form, for the 'classical' period. It consists of only three short Movements, and there is no sort of finality at the end of the First and Second Movements, the First leading straight into the Second, the Second into the Third.

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.
