Led by Harold Jones
Conductor, Gideon Fagan The key of G minor appears to have had a tragic significance for Mozart. At any rate the first movements of the G minor Piano Quartet, the G minor String Quartet, and this great symphony are all tragic in character. Yet, strange to say, the true nature of the symphony was long misunderstood.
Mozart's contemporaries made no mistake about it, but it is characteristic of the nineteenth century's complete lack of comprehension of pre-Beethovenian music that the G minor Symphony was commonly regarded as light and joyous. No less a critic than Schumann could speak of the symphony's ' light and Grecian grace '. Nowadays we understand Mozart a little better ; the fire, passion, and pathos of the work are unmistakable.

On leaving the Royal Academy of Music he studied in Berlin under Schnabel, and in 1929 made a tour of Germany. In 1931 he gave up his professorship at the Academy to fulfil his extensive concert engagements.

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.
