SCHUBERT'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS
Played by JAMES CHINO
Grouse (Great) Sonata in A (3rd and 4th Movements)
The third movement is a full-sized Scherzo, not unlike the Scherzos of Beethoven.
The first theme is divided between the right and left hands, and the second section of the movement begins with both hands in the bass. The Trio is shorter, and its effect is made largely by unexpected intrusions on the third beat of the bar, sometimes at the top of the keyboard, and sometimes in the bass.
The last movement is a dainty Rondo, in which the principal theme is heard at the outset, returning ever and anon after episodes of the most varied interest have interrupted its' reappearances. The movement comes to an end with a brilliant Presto in which the melody begins in the bass.
Sang by CLARA BUTTERWORTH (Soprano) and LEONARD GOWINGS (Tenor)

SONGS by Montague Phillips figure constantly in programmes, and much of his music is popular in the best sense of the word. The attractive music to The Rebel Maid is also his. But his music is not all of the light-hearted order which listeners know best; he has composed in more serious vein, and his larger works include a Symphony, a Symphonic Poem on the subject of Boadicea, an Overture (called 'Heroic Overture') and a pianoforte concerto.
Born in 1885 he was a distinguished pupil of the Royal Academy of Music, of which he is now a Fellow. He has also held the posts of Professor of Composition and Examiner there...
CHRISTMAS, the season of Marley's ghost and Gabriel Grub and a host of other such stories, is an appropriate time to talk about ghosts. And we can again talk seriously and sincerely about ghosts and about the Thing, for, as Mr. Heard will show, the Victorian rationalism and purblind science that killed Marley and the goblins has been itself killed by a greater knowledge that brings us again to the threshold of the unseen. Mr. Heard will be remembered as a protagonist in some of the most stimulating broadcast discussions and debates, and he is the author of an interesting book of philosophyâ€” ' Focus 'â€”which will shortly appear.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
