: BEETHOVEN

The First Six Quartets—1
(dedicated to Prince Lobkowitz)
String Quartet in F, Op. 18, No. 1 played by The Griller String Quartet-Sidney Griller (violin), Jack O'Brien (violin), Philip Burton (viola), Colin Hampton
(cello)
Listeners will remember the series of Mozart String Quartets, dedicated to Haydn, which were recently broadcast every week. Beginning this evening, Beethoven's first series of string quartets, Op. 18, will be heard during the course of the next six weeks. The Op. 18 quartets, although distinctly modelled on the quartets of Haydn and Mozart, bear strongly the stamp of Beethoven's own powerful individuality.
These six quartets were the beginning of a number of examples in this form of chamber music which culminated in five works that have never been equalled for beauty of thought and greatness of imagination, but unlike these last quartets the Op. 18 present no problems to the listener: they are comparatively simple in construction and full of charming melodies.
The F major Quartet is a particularly beautiful example. Of the four movements the adagio is possibly the most individual, although the scherzo shows considerable originality of form.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
