Variations on a Theme of Haydn
THIS work, one of the mosi delightful of the few really famous sets of orchestral variation is composed of a theme, eight variations upon it, and the finale The theme itself is taken from a Divertimento by Haydn for wind instruments, which will be printed for the first time in the collected edition of Haydn's works. This would seem to indicate that, with the exception of this theme, there is not much in it worth printing.
For some unknown reason,
Haydn called this Divertimento the Chorale St. Antonii. The melody Is simple enough, but as Brahms has proved, full of immense possibilities. One critic has said of it that it is ' filled with a kind of intimate solemnity, as though it had been written for the golden wedding of some noble pair.' This may be so, but it will have different meanings for different people, or, better still, no meaning at all. It is just a serene melody, part of it peculiarly constructed in a five-bar rhythm, with a supremely satisfying cadence of which Brahms makes the utmost. For the rest, the music speaks very eloquently for itself.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
