(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
This sparkling little work, one of Mozart's lesser-known compositions, is one of a set of nine symphonies found stitched together in a little blue-grey binding and probably all composed about 1773. Nine pages of the autograph are in a strange hand-possibly Leopold Mozart 's.
The three movements are linked by transition passages, a feature that increases the similarity to the Italian opera overture of'the day. As Abert points out, there is no theme-development ' in the German sense ' but merely transposed repetition of ideas in the old Italian style.

(Set 2, No. 4)
1 Adagio-Allegro. 2 Adagio-Allegro brillante
Solo organ, G. THALBEN-BALL
Overture, Samson
At the time they were composed and the first twelve of them made available through Walsh, the publisher, the organ concertos of Handel must have at once made an astonishing impression and quickly have become universally popular. And justly so for several reasons. They were, it is true, virtuoso pieces, written to exhibit technical brilliance, but were not too far beyond the powers of the average organist of that day-Walsh's sales were a guarantee of that. They were unquestionably of a secular character, which the organ works of Handel's contemporaries unquestionably were not ; and they were masterly pieces of music by the recognised master of them all.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed], and usual agents. Prices (including Entertainments Tax): 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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.
