The Willoughby Trio : Louis Willoughby (violin) Vivian Joseph (violoncello)
Margaret Chamberlain (pianoforte)
Dumka (plural: dumky) is really a Ukrainian word meaning ' lament But dumky — melancholy and wildly passionate folk ballads, often with interludes of reckless gaiety-are common to most of the Slavonic peoples, to Great Russians, Czechs, and Poles as well as the Ukrainians.
The term seems to have specially appealed to Dvorak, for he introduced dumka movements in a number of his chamber works (e.g., the Sextet, Op. 48, the String Quartet in E flat, Op. 51, etc.). But in 1890-91 he composed this trio consisting solely of dumky. They are six in number and are thematically independent of each other, but the first three run into each other without a break.
The Trio is one of the most characteristic of all Dvorak's chamber works. The three instruments are made to suggest an astonishing range of tone colour.


Violin: Louis Willoughby

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.
