7.59 app. Piano Concerto in B flat
(K. 595)
8.31 app. Symphony No. 40, in G minor (K. 550)
From the Royal Albert Hall, London Tickets may be obtained from the Royal Albert Hall or usual agents
All the works in tonight's concert belong to the later years of Mozart's life. ' A Little Night Music' for strings was written in August 1787 (when he was thirty-one), two months before the production of Don Giovanni. The Piano Concerto in B flat (K.595), his last piano concerto, was written in 1791; and the Symphony in G minor dates from 1788.
The two arias from Don Giovanni are sung by Ottavio, the devoted lover of Donna Anna, whose father, the Commendatore, is killed by Don Giovanni at the opening of the opera. ' Dalla sua pace,' which comes from Act 1, was composed, not for the original production in Prague, but for the Viennese performances in the following year. II mio tesoro,' from the second scene of Act 2, is one of rhe loveliest of Mozart's arias; in it Ottavio pledges his word to comfort his beloved and avenge -the death of the Commendatore.
Mozart himself played the Concerto for the first time in March 1791. Its valedictory character is clear; yet the Concerto also has passion and great inventive power. The final Rondo, wistfully gay, is based on a theme which Mozart used for a song called ' Longing for Spring,' written a few days after the Concerto.
In the great G minor Symphony one feels that Mozart, without transgressing the classical mould of his art, bridges the generations and foreshadows the uneasiness of spirit characteristic of the Romantic movement. Harold Rutland

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.

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.
