: SCHUBERT

Quintet in A, Op. 114 (The Trout)
1 Allegro vivace. 2 Andante. 3 Scherzo: Presto. 4 Tema con variazioni : Andantino. 5 Allegro giusto played by The Philharmonic String Trio:
David Martin (violin)
Frederick Riddle (viola)
James Whitehead (violoncello) with James W. Merrett (double-bass) and John Wills (pianoforte)
In the summer of 1819, Schubert set off on a carefree holiday with * his friend Vogl. The trip began and ended at Steyr, a charming little town near Linz, and Schubert's letters written there are full of enthusiasm for the beauty of his surroundings, and for the happy company in which he was making so much music. It was for a group of the friends by whom he was surrounded that this quintet was written.
Here, as in the ' Death and the Maiden ' String Quartet, Schubert has built up one of the movements, the fourth, on a song of his own, 'Die Forelle' ('The Trout'). It begins with the song melody played simply by strings alone, and six variations on it follow.

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

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.
