SOFFI SCHÖNNING (Soprano)
THE HETTY BOLTON TRIO
THE two Pianoforte Trios are Schubert at his very best, the Schubert of the big C Major and the ' Unfinished ' Symphony. The first main theme of the first movement of number two is emphatically set forth at the very outset by all the instruments in unison ; the second, when it appears, in a soft whisper at first, is in s triking contrast to it, and the whole long movement is built up in the most interesting way on these two.
The slow movement is among the most beautiful things in the whole domain of chamber musio. Begin. ning with a steady march rhythm, it has a theme of profound sadness, which merges gradually into a mood of strength and vigour to return at the end to a slower version of the opening.
The Scherzo has a Canon which the pianoforte begins and the violin and violoncello together imitate at the distance of one bar, with a vigorous Trio in the middle as contrast.
The last movement, long and lovingly worked out, begins with a sprightly theme which soon becomes bold and energetic, making way afterwards for a second main theme which runs about lightly on repeated notes. Towards the end the sad march theme of the slow movement is heard again in a new rhythm, but now it leads to a major close with a wonderful sense of strength and exaltation.

: Professor GRAHAM KERR: 'Links in the Chain of Life—II, The Earthworm.' S.B. from Glasgow

So simple a form of life as the earthworm is not usually considered to be worth our serious attention. That the earthworm, however, is an interesting creature and one the study of which provides some stimulating food for thought, Professor Graham Kerr will show us tonight. His talk will tell us of the earthworm's habits, its structure, the functions of its body, its feeding arrangements, its nervous system, and its brains.

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
