Tchaikovsky prefaces his score of Mozartiana with the following note : ' A great number of most admirable little compositions of Mozart are, for reasons which appear to me incomprehensible, very little known, not only to the public, but to the majority of musicians. My idea in arranging several of these numbers under the title of Mozartiana is to give a new impulse to the performance of these little master-pieces, which show incomparable beauty in every line and featrrre.'
The Theme and Variations is the last movement of the Suite. The tune used as the theme is that known as Unscr dummer t'obel Meint, which is, however, not by Mozart at all ; it is one, popular at the time, which he borrowed and used also for a set of variations, written for the pianoforte.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
