Mozart's opera The Magic Flute was written at the request of Schikanaender, who was the manager of a small theatre situated in the grounds of Prince Starhemberg's house, in a suburb of Vienna. The libretto was written by Schikanaender and Gieseke, another of Mozart's friends. All three were members of the same Masonic Lodge , and the opera has always been understood to be connected with certain Masonic rites and ceremonies.
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).
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
