Played by LAFFITTE.
The ' Appassionata ' Sonata-Second and Last
TONIGHT wo are to hear the whole of the SECOND MOVEMENT (that consisting of Variations on a theme), part of which was played last night.
The first two of the three Variations were then described. The third has a rapidly running accompaniment, and part of the melody is syncopated. Then it returns in a simple form, and when we expect a final chord, the Composer, with a very different one, twice repeated, sounds a questioning note, before plunging into the LAST MOVEMENT.
This maintains the mysterious and sombre tono of the earlier part of the Sonatn, but with an added note of urgency and stress. According to Ries, a pupil of Beethoven, the music was composed during a stormy night.

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.
