THE BRODSKY QUARTET: Dr. ADOLPH BRODSKY
(1st Violin), ALFRED BARKER (2nd Violin),
HELEN RAWDON BRIGGS (Viola), CARL FUCHS (Cello) IN his early years Beethoven almost idolized Mozart. It is not surprising, then, that his early work reminds us of his great forerunner now and then. But even in early Beethoven there is always a powerful, original individuality at work, moulding the old forms afresh, and filling them with new ideas and unexpected treatment. The sixth Quartet, the last of a set grouped together as ' Op. 18,' has four Movements. The FIRST is lively and fairly conventional, though it has strokes of fancy and freshness. In the SECOND MOVEMENT the Composer lets the instruments sing us a few lovely melodies in meditative mood, with accompaniments woven of the smoothest, most luxurious tissue imaginable. THIRD MOVEMENT. Syncopation was known long before Beethoven's time, of course, but few composers used it so effectively as he did. Here, in this Scherzo, is a bit of this rhythmic waggery.
Note how, at the hands of our fine quartet of players, the underlying bar-rhythm is not lost.
We" lilt, but do not stagger helplessly. The LAST MOVEMENT is preceded by a curious short section, entitled La Malinconica- Melancholy. It is just an interpolation of a finely-etched mood, before the Composer dashes off into his gay Rondo. The sad mood peeps in again, near the end, but its time is past, and jollity reigns supreme at the finish. SYDNEY COLTHAM

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
