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 feature'. The theme of the Variations is by Gluck, so that here we have a composite work by three great masters.
Now universally accepted as having been inspired by Dvorak's interest in the Negro melodies of the United States during the short stay which he made there, the 'New World' Symphony on its first appearance was claimed by his fellow countrymen as being thoroughly Bohemian, like the rest of his music. Indeed, they suggested that it might be even more so as embodying something of the home-sickness which Dvorak admittedly felt amid the noise and bustle of New York. But whether the tunes are Negro or Bohemian, they are all fine melodies, and the popularity of the Symphony is very easy to understand.

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.
