' The Good Humoured Ladies' owes its name to the Russian Ballet. of Diaghilev, who produced it in 1919 with a plot by Goldoni. The music is taken from the harpsichord pieces of Domenico Scarlatti. Well suited for such a ballet, it is graceful, light-hearted music, and it has been admirably arranged for this purpose by Tommasini, a modern Italian composer whose work is less known than :t deserves to be.
The theme of Brahms's Variations was taken from an unpublished Divertimento for wind instruments by Haydn. Professor Tovey points out in his analysis of the work that although the theme Is inscribed ' St. Anthony's Choral ' which tells us nothing, nevertheless it ' has led that otherwise attractively enthusiastic and well-informed biographer, Kalbeck, to read into Brahms's variations a musical description of the temptation of St. Anthony. Brahms did not live to see this outrage on one of his most serenely beautiful monuments to the joy of sanity. But if intimacy with a diamond so true and so rough as Brahms could not scarify the nonsense out of his accredited biographer, we can at least give an independent listening to tne music. It is quite as imaginative as any masterpiece that ever dealt with St. Anthony's trials ; but whatever the temptation it deals with, they never endangered the soul or the reason of saint or sinner'.

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.
