Haydn wrote seventy-six string quartets during his lifetime. They range in order from his first composition, Op. 1, No. 1, to his last, unfinished, Op. 103, in such sequence as to make it clear ho must almost always have had the writing of a quartet either in hand or in contemplation. The quartet to be performed tonight is among the last twenty or so, and naturally shows Haydn in his last and best stage of maturity.
Gian Francesco Malipiero was born in Venice in 1882, and is one of the most original minds in modem music. He was the son of an Italian pianist, and spent most of his boyhood abroad, returning as a youth to his native city. He studied with Bossi and Max Bruch , but it was a sojourn in Paris in 1913 that was the determining influence of his career, for contact there with Stravinsky, Ravel, and Casella decided his departure from the traditions that he had followed. And this to the tune of destroying two operas and several symphonic poems that had already had performances in Italy, Paris, and Vienna, on the ground that they no longer represented his ideals ! He is one of the most intellectual and combative musicians of the day, and has essayed most branches of composition. He has been described as ' a classic imbued with the restless spirit of romanticism.' He can hardly be said to belong to either category, however, as he has turned his back on most traditional principles and is guided by his own individual vision and logic. The originality of his aims may be gauged from the opera Pantea, written for a dancer, invisible orchestra, and chorus, in which the dancer's movements are meant by the composer to convey ' moods of the soul.'
This work, which bears a very late (posthumous) opus number, was actually composed in 1814, when Schubert was still laboriously teaching little boys at the curiously-named 'Convict' School. It was not published during the composer's lifetime, and the manuscript wps probably amongst the ' effects' which were sold after Schubert's death for a few shillings.

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.
