ISOBEL LAMOND (Mezzo-Soprano)
THE HEWITT STRING QUARTET
THE twenty-fifth of the works which he wrote in this form, and the first of the set of three dedicated to the King of Prussia, Mozart's Quartet in D Major was composed at Vienna in 1789. It represents him at the height of his powers and needs only to be heard to bo enjoyed. And evidently His Majesty of Prussia was of this opinion too, since it is on record that immediately after the first performance of the work he sent to the composer in token of his appreciation a costly gold snuff-box containing one hundred Friedriehs d'or-a suitable exchange, as one may say, of gold for notes.
DEBUSSY'S Quartet in G Minor, the only work which he wrote in this form, dates from the year 1895, when he was just over thirty years old, and has of course long been recognized as one of his finest and most solid achievements. The movements to be played from it this afternoon are the two middle ones—the brilliantly effective Scherzo and the charming Andantino.

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.
