: A Popular Concert

Relayed from the National Museum of Wales
NATIONAL ORCHESTRA OF WALES (Cerddorfa Genedlaethol Cymru)


Relayed from the Assembly Room, City
(Cerddorfa Genedlaatheh Cymru)
Conducted by WARWICK
MOZARTS amazing skill as an infant prodigy pianist, completely overshadowed his attainments as violinist, but there is no doubt that he was a proficient performer. It was his father's wish that he should be able to play the violin well, and as a dutiful son, he applied himself assiduously to practising it. He composed six Violin Concertos as part of his own study of the instrument, and probably played them himself. They are all laid out for small orchestra, and this one, in conventional form, is short as compared with most modern concertos.
There is the usual orchestral Introduction in which both chief tunes are set forth. At the end of it the first theme is once more begun by the orchestra, the violin taking it up from the other strings. When he has the second chief tuno ho plays it in double notes.
The slow movement is a song-like melody with two closely allied tunes, which is in the hands of the soloist almost all the way through.
The last movement, full of merriment and almost boisterous gaiety, is a Rondo, with the chief tune twice returning after different episodes havo interrupted it. The chief tune is begun at once by the soloist and repeated after him, by the orchestra.

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.
