Solo pianoforte, MYRA HESS
The A major Piano Concerto, one of the finest of all Mozart's concerted works, dates from March, 1786. In other words, it belongs to the Figaro period. It is one of the three concertos composed for Mozart's subscription concerts in the Lent of that year, the other two being the E flat (K.482) and the C minor (K.491).

Solo clarinet, FREDERICK THURSTON
See the short article on page 15
A particularly interesting item in this evening's programme is the rarely heard Clarinet Concerto of Mozart. The soloist, Frederick Thurston , is one of the finest exponents of his instrument.
He first studied the clarinet under his father, and then won an open scholarship to the Royal College of Music and studied under that great clarinettist, Charles Draper. On leaving the College, Thurston joined the Covent Garden Orchestra and what was then known as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Since the early days of the BBC at Marconi House, he has played principal clarinet, and although still a young man when the BBC Symphony Orchestra was formed, was chosen for the post of principal clarinet. i
9.18 Symphony No. 40, in G minor
(K.550)
1 Allegro molto. 2 Andante. 3 Minuet: Allegro. 4 Finale: Allegro assai
In one year, 1788, three years before his death, Mozart composed his last three symphonies, which are also his greatest. They were all written within less than two months, the E flat major (No. 39) being dated June 26, the G minor (No. 40) July 25, and the ' Jupiter' in C (No. 41) August 10. Each is emotionally different, yet all are unmistakably Mozart at his very finest.
The E flat Symphony is happiness itself, the ' Jupiter ' all dignity and grace, while of the G minor Otto Jahn , Mozart's biographer, wrote that it seems to express a sorrow rising ' in a continuous climax to a wild movement, as though seeking to stifle care'. It is as though Mozart had in this triptych deliberately written in terms of music that part of his autobiography which could alone be so expressed.
Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1, Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1, and the usual Agents. Prices : 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved). Promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
