: A SONATA RECITAL

VICTOR OLOF (Violin)
SIDNEY CROOKE (Pianoforte)
Sonata in D Minor, Op. 108 Brahms
THE third of Brahms' three Sonatas for Violin and Pianoforte, this is the first favourite with a good many violinists. It was composed in 1889. It is on the whole a. grave and thoughtful work, but full of Brahms' own song-like melody.
The first movement is in the usual form-two chief themes which are set forth, worked out, and then repeated at the end of the movement.
The second movement, short, is lyrical and tender, and the third is in the usual Scherzo form with a contrasting middle section. The opening section is somewhat altered when it reappears at the end.
The last movement is in Rondo form, that is, a movement in which the principal tune keeps on coming round after various episodes have interrupted it. It is bright and vivacious, and the chief tune is heard at the outset.

: Mr. ERNEST NEWMAN : 'The B.B.C. Music Critic'

THIS evening Mr. Ernest Newman
, who has lately been giving the talks on next week's broadcast music, will give his first talk in his new capacity of the B.B.C. music critic-the position so long filled by Mr. Percy Scholes. Mr. Newman has made his name as one of the most trenchant and vigorous of music critics, and one who, whilst as learned as any, possesses a style attractive to the layman as well as to the serious student of music. He has been critic to The Manchester Guardian, The Birmingham Post and The Sunday Times, !and has published many books, among the most notable being ' Wagner as Man and Artist' and ' The Unconscious Beethoven.'

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
