: A POPULAR VIOLIN SONATA

PEGGY COCHRANE (Violin) with HILDA DEDERICH
(Pianoforte) playing the GRIEG'S feet were first set on the path of music by his friend Ole Bull, the Violinist, to whose influence we owe a good many exceedingly effective Violin pieces that Grieg wrote.
He attempted few large-scale works, and when he used the sonata scheme one finds, usually, that he has simply written three very effective and quite simply constructed pieces, very charming, but not essentially built up into one homogeneous work. He is almost always at his best in short lyrical pieces. This Sonata aims, in its First and Last Movements, at greater intensity of feeling than most' of his other works. Its Second Movement, as in the other two (earlier) Sonatas, is pleasantly romantic.

: SCHUBERT

Interpreted by EDGAR BAINTON
Sonata in B Flat (Posthumous Work), concluded :
Scherzo, Allegro Vivace ; Allegro ma non Troppo
BEETHOVEN is supposed to have said on his death-bed : ' You, Anselm [an intimate friend] have my mind, but Franz has my soul.' Franz Schubert , in some of his deeper music, shows us Beethoven's soul, but he never shows it more plainly and unmistakably than in the last two Movements of this Sonata.
The SCHERZO (Quick, lively, with delicacy) is a ' jest ' indeed, after Beethoven's own heart, direct, flashing, perhaps freakish. Notice the abrupt tune given out in the Treble and repeated in the Bass, then subjected to broken treatment, leading to one never knows what next, finally repeated...
Then comes a subdued, mysterious Trio, and the repetition of the Scherzo.
The FINALE (Quick) starts with a peremptory little Tune ; then a chord arrests us, and insists on the tune being repeated. Time after time that chord pulls up sharp the racing music, and brings back the Tune, which, however, takes all sorts of twists and turns.
So the music proceeds. But Schubert, the songster, cannot resist breaking into a straightforward song twice in the Movement, and there are times when he becomes forceful for a moment, but the music grows yet swifter and lighter as it nears the end.

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.
