Played by Joan Trimble and Valerie Trimble
Sonata...Arnold Cooke
(BBC recording)
Arnold Cooke's Sonata (1937) is dedicated to Adolph Hallis and Franz Reizenstein.
The first movement begins Andante and leads to a vigorous Allegro; the second movement, Larghetto, has a graceful middle section in nine-eight time; the greater part of the finale, Molto vivace, is in the style of a Tarantella.
The Sonata by Stravinsky, written in 1943-44, has a smooth-flowing opening movement (Moderato), followed by a Theme (Largo), with four Variations, leading to a short Allegretto for finale.

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.
