Played by KENNETH SKEAPING (Violin)
EDWARD J. ROBINSON (Violoncello)
Op. 9, No. 1, First and Second Movements
BEETHOVEN composed four Trios for Strings, all early works, but all delightiul and affording in every case abundant evidence of the rare promise which he displayed from the first in the domain of chamber music. Of these early Trios it has been said, indeed, that they showed the youthful Beethoven beginning where the mature Mozart had left off, and actually rivalling in this particular field the achievements of the older master from the first.
The Trio in G (Op. 9, No. 1) haa always been the most popular of the set of three to which it belongs, though the one in C minor (No. 3) is even finer in some respects. It opens with a slow introduction (Adagio) leading to a lively first movement based on two main themes.
Of these the 6rst, of considerable length, ia very vigorous and animated, with quick runs and energetic arpeggio figures as its leading features. The second, not less attractive, but of a quieter character, is presented in the form of staccato chords, played very softly at first.
In happy contrast to the animation of the opening Allegro is the tranquillity of the slow movement (Adagio) based on a long, flowing theme of a beautifully expressive character.

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.
