Concerto, 'La Cintola' - Castrucci, arr. Moffat Andante; Molto quasi adagio
Larghetto - Weber, arr. Kreisler

There were two Castruccis, Italian musicians who both came to England, but of Prospero we know very little except that Dr. Burney says he died in 1760, and that he was the original of Hogarth's picture, 'The Enraged Musician.'

Pietro, a distinguished pupil of Corelli, was, for a time, leader of Handel's opera band.
Besides being a violinist, he was renowned as a player on an instrument which he himself had invented and which he called Violetta Marina, and in one of Handel's operas there is an aria with accompaniment for two of these which was played by the two brothers. After leaving Handel, he went to Ireland, where he was, for a time, conductor of concerts in Dublin, and, so far as we know, he died there in 1752. Alfred Moffat, whoso name appears often on programmes as arranger of old music, has done a good deal more than the word 'arranged' at all adequately describes. It is not too much to say that he hag re-discovered a whole school of medieval music which, until he unearthed it, had been neglected, and practically lost, for generations.

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.
