URSULA GREVILLE (Soprano)
TN this musical jest Mozart is poking fun not only at the simple musicians who moot together of an evening in the village inn to make music for their own pleasure, but also at the clumsy and maladroit composer. And yet, through the very helplessness on the part of the composer, which the music is meant to suggest, we can discern tho hand of a real master. To make fun so successfully as this demands a very high level of attainment. The players are all gi ven chances of being as absurd I as they like ; the solo violin, particularly, is invited to indulge in a display of real futility.
There are four movements ; the first, Allegro, hogins with a veryelementary tune, harmonized with the most child-like simplicity. Thesecond is a Minuet marked Maestoso, and though it, too, is very obvious in its design, there aro little snatches of real Mozart-like grace which he cloarly could not resist inserting. In the same way, tho Adagio cantabile, which is the third movement, begins with a melody which Mozart need not have blushed to give us oven in a serious work. The last movement, a bustling Presto, is rather like the first in its elementary outlines ; it is one which any good orchestra is bound to enjoy playing in the spirit offun which inspires the whole work.

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.
