THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
STRING Trios BY BEETHOVEN
Played by KENNETH SKEAPING (Violin)
BERNARD SHORE (Viola)
EDWARD J. ROBINSON (Violoncello)
Op. 9, No. 3, Second, Third and Fourth Movements
THE second, third, and fourth movements of Beethoven's C Minor Trio (Op. 9, No. 3) are all full of interest. The fine slow movement (Adagio con expressione) differs from the general run of such movements in following the more elaborate form of an opening Allegro. Thus it has its first and second subjects, ' 'free fantasia,' recapitulation and coda all complete, instead of being based mainly, as is more usual, on one simple song-like theme.
In pre-Beethoven music a Minuet would probably have followed, but Beethoven, even at this stage of his career, had already come to prefer the more vigorous Scherzo, of which the next movement is a characteristic early example.
A Finale, a Presto, opens with a vigorous first theme, to which succeeds an ' episode ' distinguishable by its scale passages in what is called ' contrary motion,' that is, going in opposite directions. The melodious second main theme which follows will be no less readily identified.

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.
