: MOZART

Played by HILDA DEDERICH
Sonata No. 12, in F Major (K 332)
Allegro ; Adagio ; Allegro assai
THE Twelfth Sonata in F is a favourite work at the music lesson, and many pianists who rise to distinction retain their affection for it.
The FIRST of its three Movements opens with a flowing melody that might have been written for a soprano to sing, and this vocal quality appears in all its tunes.
It is still more evident in the SLOW MOVEMENT which follows (although the imaginary soprano in this case would have to be an adept with her high notes).
The THIRD MOVEMENT is more a matter for fingers to deal with. It swings and rushes and jumps along, musically speaking, with a pretty exhilaration from beginning to end.

: CHAMBER MUSIC

THE ÆOLIAN PLAYERS: JOSEPH SLATER (Flute),
ANTONIO BROSA (Violin), REBECCA CLARKE (Viola) and GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte) MOZART wrote over forty Violin Sonatas, most of them marked by an extreme simplicity of texture and a daintiness .that has been lost in later works of the same kind. Two of the forty nro in the key of E Minor, and each of those consists of two sections only. MAX REGER (1873-1916) is one of the comparatively few modem Composers who have kept largely to classical models. His music has power and is closely woven; indeed, the thickness of texture and the richness of harmony amount sometimes to stodginess. Roger's works total nearly a hundred and fifty-a remarkable output for a man little over forty. Piano Solo, ' Hymn to the Sun' Rimaky-Korsakov (New Concert Transcription by Gordon Bryan)
JOSEPH JONGEN , whose Prelude follows next in the programme, is a native of Liege. A refugee in England during the war. he gave many concerts in London and the provinces as the Piano-playing member of a Quartet that included Mr. Lionel Tertis , the famous Viola player. He is now a Professor at the Brussels Conservatoire.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
