THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
SCHUBERT'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS played by JAMES CHING
No. 2 Grosse (Great) Sonata in A (1st and 2nd
Movements)
THIS is the second of three Sonatas designated
' Great Sonatas.' The one in B Flat played at the beginning of the week in this series was the third.
The first movement of this is, indeed, cast in an imposing mould, but though worked out at some length, it is all so happily melodious that none would wish it shorter. It begins with a subject in which the keynote persists at the top of the harmony for five bars, and the repetition of one note is an important feature of the whole movement, forming part of the second main theme also.
The second movement begins quietly and s imply with a happy little song melody, that is sot forth very much after the manner of one of Schubert's songs, to form the first section of the movement.

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.
