The ' Keltic ' Senata Second and Third Movements
IN the. SECOND MOUVEMENT of the ' Keltic '
Sonata MacDowell dwells upon the lovely
Deirdre. He puts at the head of the Movement the direction ' with naive tenderness.' It opens with a slow melody, whose sweeping supporting chords remind us of the harpers of old who sang their ballads to their own accompaniment. The theme is somewhat developed, with rapidly-increasing emotion, until the entry of the Second Main Tune. Ever broader and more dignified becomes the music until, 'stately and sonorous,' the First Tiine returns, to (lie away extremely softly at the end.
In the LAST MOVEMENT, 'very swift and fierce,'
MacDowell suggests the scene of Cuchullin's death after being wounded in battle.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
