: Orchestral Concert

Relayed from

ALMOST all the smaller orchestral pieces of Mozart's, called by many various names, are what the Germans know as 'Unterhaltungsmusik'—' Entertainment Music.' Many of them were intended for performance in the open air, which no doubt accounts for the prominent parts given to the winds. Sometimes, depending on the players who were available, a little miniature concerto would make its appearance between the more usual movements, to give the performer in question a specially good innings cf his own. But, as a rule, the Divertimento consists of six movements of which a Minuet and Trio is almost invariably one.
SINIGAGLIA, although he is already past his sixtieth year, is holding his own in contemporary Italian music alongside of a young and very enthusiastic school of moderns and even ultra-moderns. A pupi) of Dvorak's, he no doubt acquired from the Bohemian master something of his enthusiasm for folk-music, and has long been active in the collection and use of the folk-tunes of his native Piedmont. His Piedmontese dances appear frequently in concert programmes all over the world.
The name of this piece means the squabbles,' or even ' the shindy ' at Chioggia ; it is merrily descriptive of boisterous country scenes.

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.
