Under the direction of Johan Hock from Queen's College Chambers
Lecture Hall, Birmingham
A Recital by Johan Hock (violoncello) and Beatrice Hewitt
Beethoven's A major Sonata for 'cello and piano was published in April, 1809, at the same time as the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies. Written at the height of Beethoven's maturity, it is one of his finest chamber works. Its general character of good-humoured dignity is relieved only by the scherzo. In a work remarkable throughout for sheer loveliness of sound the chief subjects of the first' movement and finale are outstanding. The finale combines Beethoven's characteristic nobility and tenderness with an almost Mozartian light-heartedness ; the return of the chief subject is particularly memorable.
The 'Cello Sonatas, Op. 102,
No. 1, in C and No. 2, in D, were composed in the summer of 1815 at Baden. At that time Linke, 'cellist of the Rasumovsky Quartet was staying with the Countess Erdody at Jedlersee and Beethoven frequently visited the house. The C major which Beethoven himself called a ' free sonata ' is rather more austere in character than the A major which opens this programme.

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.
