BACH'S 48 PRELUDES AND FUGUES
•Played through consecutively at this hour daily throughout the month.
IN yesterday's note something was said about the idea underlying Bach's ' 48.' One of the first things that must strike one in hearing a succession of these Preludes and Fugues is their infinite variety of style and mood, and the wonderful expressiveness of .the Fugues in particular.
On the Clavichord, the favourite domestic keyboard instrument of Bach, much more expression and delicacy could be obtained than on the Harpsichord.
The modem Piano, of couree, can reproduce all the delicate gradations of tone that the Clavichord could give; but a few enthusiasts, who have made a study of the older instrument, affirm that, in its miniature fashion, its tone is not excelled in beauty and subtlety by even the finest Grand Pinno of to-day.
The two hooks of the ' 48 ' represent distinct periods in Bach's career. The first was completed in 1722,' when the Composer was thirtyeeven, and was engaged as chief musician to a German Prince; the second dates from 1744, when he was nearly sixty, and had long been in possession of his great final post as a church musician at Leipzig.

Played by HILDA DEDERICH
Rondo N,o. 3 in A Minor Rondo No. 3 in D Major
MOZART composed three Rondos, of which that in A Minor is perhaps the most notable. It was written, probably for some friend, near the end of his life, when he was staying in Vienna.
The chief melody of the Rondo has something of the folk-song style in it, and starts off quietly and modestly, almost sadly- quite unlike the majority of Rondo tunes, which are gay.
The graceful ornamentation, the strong, clear-cut harmony, and the under-current of plaintiveness are attractive elements in this rather uncommon Rondo.

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.
