Interpreted by SOLOMON
Sonata in C Minor, Op. 4
Part II. (c) Larghetto, (d) Finale-Presto
IN the Third Movement of his First Piano
Sonata, Chopin experimented with five-beats-to-a-bar. But, rather than any marked pulsation, he gives us a slow, smooth flow of indefinite rhythm. In this Movement there is much of that deep, meditative emotion which is often the essence of his quieter music.
The FOURTH MOVEMENT is a brilliant, rather lengthy Finale. Its chief features are the rhythmic beats and upward sweeps of the opening, and a rather severe, solemn, low-pitched tune heard a while later.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
