ROBERT MAITLAND (Baritone)
THE ZIMMER STRING QUARTET:
ALBERT ZIMMER (Violin): FREDERICK GHIGH (Violin); EDOUARD PIEL (Viola);
EMILE DOEHARD (Violoncello)
THE form of the first movement is unusual. It begins with a gently moving Allegretto, built up on a happy tune like a rather swift Barcarolle, from which lively little variations are made, and then the movement passes to a brisk Allegro whose tune is the same as the beginning of the first part.
The slow movement, although called ' 'Sad'
(Mesto) has really nothing deeply melancholy about it, and the fine big tune with which the first violin opens the movement is quite a serene and contented one. There is a little hint of sadness when the same tune appears later on the lower strings, but on the whole the movement is like Haydn's inimitable good spirits.
The Minuet and Trio are both brisk and light. footed, and the last movement is really frolicsome and gay. Anyone who can listen to its almost mischievous good spirits without a thought of laughter is indeed in a sorry frame of mind.

: ROBERT MAITLAND

Assai, sostenuto—Allegro;
'Allegro ma non tanto ; Heiliger
Dankgesang eines Genesenen an die Gottheit, in lidischer Tonart; Molto adagio ; Neue Kraft fuhlend (feeling new strength); Andante — Molto adagio — Andante — Molto adagio, mit innigster Empfindung; Alla marcia, assai vivace; Recitative, attacca; Allegro appassionato
IT has been pointed out before how much of Beethoven's own personality is expressed in the last great String Quartets, and of none is that more true than of this one.
The first movement begins with a slow and solemn introduc. tion in very quiet tone, and then the first violin breaks in with a nourish at the opening of the quick part of the movement. Almost at once the violoncello has a little snatch of the theme which is afterwards played in full by the first violin, and all through the movement it will be heard now in one voice, now in another.
The second movement is a form of Intermezzo with alternative section, and the third, a very splendid and beautiful slow movement, is the one which gives the Quartet its name.
The last movement opens with a robust march theme and a little later there is a splendid flowing tune, one of the noblest of all Beethoven's melodies, which forms the basis of most of the movement.

: Mrs. HELEN ROBINSON: 'Contract Bridge and how to Play it-I'

The series of hands at Auction Bridge having now reached its conclusion, will be followed by a series of demonstrations on the new game of Contract Bridge, now so popular among bridge-players. Mrs. Robinson is well known as one of the best exponents of the game. This evening she will explain the main points of difference between Contract and Auction Bridge, her talk being punctuated by queries from a ' pupil.'

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.
