JOHN IRELAND (Pianoforte)
Sonata for Violoncello and Pianoforte (Composed in 1923) JOHN IRELAND (born at Bowden, Cheshire in 1879) was, it will be remembered, the subject of the second ' New Friends in Music ' hour recently. This programme will enable listeners who may not be very familiar with his music to make acquaintance with other sides of his art. In one particularly—in chamber music— he has won very wide distinction.
His first Sonata for Pianoforte and 'Cello (in G Minor) is in three Movements : (I) At a moderate pace, in sustained style; (2) Rather slow and broad ; connected by a soliloquy for the 'Cello to (3) At a comfortable pace,in a well-marked rhythm.
From its first performance at the Æolian
Hall Miss Harrison has been associated with this Sonata, for it was she who played the 'Cello part on that occasion.

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.
