Under the direction of Johan Hock from Queen's College Chambers

The Grinke Trio:
Frederick Grinke (violin) ; Florence Hooton (violoncello) ;
Dorothy Manley (pianoforte)
With the exception of opera, Brahms excelled in every branch of musical composition. Of his many large-sized instrumental works, there are very few that cannot be described as masterpieces.
The three trios for piano, violin, and 'cello contain all Brahms's supreme qualities as a composer and remain three of the finest contributions to the literature of this particular branch of chamber music. No. 1, in B major, Op. 8, was originally published in 1854 and is, therefore, Brahms's first really ambitious work.
But in 1891 he published a revised version that, except for the scherzo, was virtually a new work. New thematic material was added to the principal theme of the three other movements and each movement reconstructed. The result is, as H. C. Coles points out, that ' in the progress of development the open countenance of youth becomes lined with the experience of age '.

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.
