MAYE MARTIN (soprano)
THE MACNAGHTEN STRING QUARTET: Anne Macnaghten (violin); Elise Desprez (violin); Beryl Scawen-Blunt (viola), Olive Richards (violoncello)
Mozart wrote three Quartets, of which this is the first, for the King of Prussia in the winter of 1789. These three are known as the 'Berlin' Quartets and have this characteristic that the 'cello part is given a good deal to do, as the 'cello was the Prussian King's own instrument. The prevailing tone of the Quartet throughout is gaiety, and it suggests, together with the opera, Così fan Tutti, which was written much about the same time, that the composer was living and working in the high spirits which, in spite of the poverty and cares against which he had to contend, characterised the real Mozart.
Schubert's G minor Quartet is a comparatively youthful work, dating from about 1813. The eighteen-year-old composer had a love of chamber music in his blood, for his family practised the quartets of Haydn and Mozart regularly on Sundays and holidays. Franz himself played the viola and, as early as 1812, began to compose for these family music-makings. The G minor Quartet is one of the most delightful of these early essays.

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.
