ORCHESTRA

Part I
The divertimento, although in essentials serving much the same purpose as the suite, was actually based upon different principles. As a rule, the divertimento was intended for the open air, and, as its name implies, was purely a diversion. In short-and using the description in its most dignified light-beer-garden music. Mozart wrote a number of these divertimenti, besides cassations, and serenades, all devoted to the same high purpose. Each contains a number of fairly short, light, graceful pieces, mostly, but not necessarily, in dance rhythm.
Although Haydn wrote six violoncello concertos, only one is at all well known, so that broadly speaking, this is the violoncellist's one concerto by any of the great classical masters. It is full of Haydn's fresh, wholesome melody, and his joyous sense of youthful good spirits.
It begins with a full-sized orchestral prelude in which we hear both the main tunes of the first movement before the solo instrument has them. Similar in their sense of fresh gaiety, they are easily distinguished one from the other, and the whole movement is clear and straightforward...
The slow movement begins at once with a beautiful simple tune played by the soloist, and there is afterwards a new tune in the key of C.
The last movement is in form a rondo. It begins with the principal tune, one which suggests, as many of Haydn's and Mozart's tunes do, a merry old English folk song. Listeners might even find themselves humming the words ' Here we go gathering Nuts in May'.
In 1788, the year following the production of Don Giovanni , Mozart wrote, his last three great symphonies (E flat, G minor, and C major) in six weeks. This would have been a remarkable feat if the symphonies had been ordinary in quality, but when they represent the highest achievements of Mozart in this form, remaining today a great landmark in ths history of the symphony, it was phenomenal.
The Symphony in E flat is scored for an orchestra consisting of strings, one flute, two horns, two trumpets, and timpani. Although composed about three years before his tragic death and at a time when poverty and ill-health were doing their best to crush his spirit, there is no reflection in the E flat Symphony of his mental tribulation. The music is as happy and gay as anything could be, and if it reflected anything at all, it was the youthful and optimistic side of the composer's nature.

ALGERNON BLACKWOOD : 'Queer
Stories '
It is hoped that this popular series of stories, which were broadcast on Friday night from April to June, will be resumed in the early autumn, when the idea of finding stories specially written for the microphone and of trying to recover the lost art of story telling will be continued.
Tonight a great story writer as well as a famous raconteur in Algernon Blackwood is to come to the microphone to entertain listeners with one or more stories, not written down and read out, but to be told extempore. Few are so qualified, but Algernon Blackwood, world-famous as a writer of the mystical and eerie, has made this his special way of entertaining his friends.

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.
