: CHOPIN'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS

Interpreted by SOLOMON
No. 3 in B Minor, Op. 58. Part II. (c) Largo (slow with breadth) ; (d) Finale presto nen tanto (very quick but not too much so) THE Third Movement of this Sonata starts with a few bars of introduction. Then follows a long tune which is, in its way, remarkable. It is very slow and quiet, and absolutely refuses to be ruffled, yet it is extremely energetic, owing to its persistent jerky rhythm, which is cunstantty emphasized by the accompaniment.
This long tune is followed by one still longer ; this second one is not even energetic, but just ambles along contentedly until at last the first tune returns.
The FINALE defies any brief general description, since it would be gross injustice'to describe it merely as a study in brilliant execution.

: Three Cavalier Songs

(C. V. Stanford). (Words by Robert Browning).
Sung by HORACE STEVENS (Bass) with the WIRELESS MALE VOICE CHORUS, conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
Towards the end of the eighteenth century the British Navy was in great need of recruits. The man who was credited with doing most to gain them was a musician, and a very bad sailor - Charles Dibdin, who wrote a prodigious number of inspiring sea songs.
We have had as genuine a paradox in our own times. Sir Charles Stanford used to take fright at the first distant rumble of a thunderstorm, yet no country has ever produced a better composer of music expressive of rousing, loyal, open-air emotions.
Stanford's gifts for the writing of such music came to light in very good time. As fine, stirring music as we possess is to be found early in his setting of Browning's Three Cavalier Songs. Marching A long has four verses (chiefly cursing the 'crop-headed' Parliamentarians) and the Chorus:
Marching along, fifty-score strong,
Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song .
Give a Rouse is a toast to King Charles. There is a Chorus, a verse, Chorus again, another verse, and Chorus once again.
Boot and Saddle is a song of the road and of battle.

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.
