: Performance on 3

A concert given on Saturday at the Fairfield Hall, Croydon, featuring the London Mozart Players' charismatic principal guest conductor James Galway , who both conducts the orchestra and appears as a soloist in tonight's programme. As well as performing one of Mozart's flute concertos, a beautifully operatic work which utterly belies the composer's insistence that he disliked writing forthe instrument, Galway is joined by his wife Jeanne for a performance of Cimarosa's concerto fortwo flutes. In addition to playing regularly with her husband in recitals and concert tours, Jeanne Galway also performs as a soloist internationally and has a flourishing career as a chamber musician. The concert begins with Schubert's Symphony No 5 in B flat major and also features one of Mozart's last great symphonies: the brooding and dramatic Symphony No 40 in G minor. Jeanne Galway (flute),
London Mozart Players, director James Galway (flute)

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.
