Quintet in A (Mozart)
Dissected by T. L. Spencer
Mozart wrote 'the quintet, which is to be dissected this evening by T. L. Spencer , for his friend Stadler, the clarinettist, and dated it September, 1789. The style and content of the quintet is ruled by the limitations of the clarinet. The stream of melody that runs through the work has its source in the character of the instrument ; its beauty is due to the composer's knowledge of the full possibilities of the clarinet. The famous larghetto is, in Abert's words, ' one continuous broadly-flowing song for the clarinet, with a dialogue between it and the first violin in the middle '.

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.
