: RICHARD T. ARSCOTT (Pianoforte)

Short Mendelssohn Recital :
Fantasia. Andante in B ; Presto in B Minor Duet from ' Songs Without Words ' Variations Sérieuses (in D Minor)
THE Serious Variations (' Variations Serieuses '). despite their name. were composed as a relaxation at a time when Mendelssohn felt his life to be heavy and laborious. The task of their composition, he tells a friend, ' amused me so famously, that I instantly made fresh ones on a theme in E Flat Major, and now for the third time on a theme in B Flat Major. I feel quite as if I must make up for lost time, never having written any Variations before.'
There are eighteen Variations in the set we are to hear, all of them pelluoidly clear and easy to follow.

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.
