The six quartets contained in Op. 76 are almost the last that Haydn wrote, and they are certainly among the most splendid. They include the quartets known as the Quinten, the Emperor (with the famous variations on the Emperor's Hymn), the Sunrise, and this one, sometimes known as the Largo, because of the wonderful slow movement which bears so unmistakably the spirit of romantic youth.
As a composer Dohnanyi was known at first by his fresh and attractive music for his own instrument, the pianoforte ; for a good many years, however, he has been steadily gaining wider recognition as a composer of orchestral and chamber music, and latterly of music for tho stage. Although making comparatively little use of actual folk tunes, most of his music is strongly characteristic of his native Hungary ; it is all distinguished not only by very able craftsmanship, but by a genuine gift of invention, flavoured with wit. This, the second of three string quartets, appeared in 1907, when he was thirty, and it is unquestionably one of the greatest quartets which our generation has produced.
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.
