: BEETHOVEN

interpreted by MAURICE COLE
Les Adieux, Op. 81a (Concluded). Feuillet d'Album
TN listening to the very short Second Movement of the Sonata (entitled by Beethoven
' Absence ') we may think of the feelings of the friend left behind, and of him who goes upon his journey, thinking a little longingly of the familiar sights and sounds of home, not sadly, but with quiet confidence that these pleasures will soon be his again.
This Movement passes without a break in the Finale-' The Return,' in which we picture the delight of both friends at the homecoming.
A short Introduction ' at the quickest possible speed ' brings in a First Main Tune of subdued excitement, that soon swings into still brisker motion ; then, with a jump the Second Main Tune whirls happily off. So the Movement runs its course in clear-eyed content.

T AYTON and Johnstone, the coloured entertainers with the piano, are amongst the most popular singers of syncopated songs that London has seen. They are a constant attraction at the Coliseum and other music-halls, and they also make frequent appearances at the leading supper-shows and cabarets.

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.
