LESS well known than another
Symphonic Concertante, which was written in Paris, although never played there, this one is a more mature work. Mozart was only twenty-three when he composed it, but already he had known something of life's tragedy, as well as of its brighter side. Only a year before his mother had died in his arms far from home amidst strangers, in Paris, and the lady to whom he had lost his heart had married another. He came back from the ill-fated Paris visit to his native Salsburg at the beginning of 1779, and took up the duties of organist and Kapellmeister (Master of the Music) to the Court and the Cathedral. But he had no groat pleasure in his duties, and they were by no means generously rewarded.
Nevertheless, he was as industrious as ever in composition and produced much fine work, which includes two masses and other church pieces, three symphonies and a concerto, besideu other instrumental music, and this attractive work for solo violin and viola with orchestra.
Although not quite on the same imposing scale as his later symphonies, it is genuine Mozart, inspired by all his grace and wonderful
, gift of melody.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
