: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

BACH'S SONATAS FOR VIOLA DA
GAMBA AND CEMBALO, played by HOWARD BLISS (Violoncello) and GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte)
Sonata No. 2, in D-First Two Movements
Eleventh Chamber Concerto, Second Movement
Played by GORDON BRYAN
THE second 'Cello Sonata begins with a short slow Movement, in which the 'Cello's utterance is suave and succinct. There follows a cheerful quick Movement, starting quietly, with a touch of lilting syncopation in it, and swelling out strongly at the half-way mark-the top of the hill, one might say. 'Cello and Pianoforte animatedly discuss the main idea all down the other side, and clearly come to a unanimous decision about it.
The Second Movement of the Concerto which Bach arranged from a work by Duke Johann Ernst of Weimar, is in two sections-a leisurely one, with an obvious fiddle-tune supported by simple harmonies in the bass, followed by a. quick fugal-style section, mostly in two 1 voices ' only. On the keyboard its busy upper voice is obviously not so much at ease as it would be on a violin.

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.
