THE Composer was only nineteen when be J- wrote this, his Second Concerto. It is In three Movements—a bold, brilliant opening one, a slow, but cheerful middle one, and a sparkling Rondo to wind up.


How Vain is Man (' Judas Maccabseus ')
QCHUBERT'S Second Trio, one of the most popular of all chamber music works, is in four Movements.
The FIRST MOVEMENT is a vigorous, stirring piece.
The SECOND MOVEMENT starts in a steadily-moving, almost march-like fashion, but soon changes to a more flowing style. It works up to an emotional climax, in which Schubert writes pretty heavily for the Strings, and just near the end drops back into the style of the opening.
THIRD MOVEMENT. This is the Scherzo, a capital Movement, in which the Pianoforto starts a theme and the Strings copy it a bar later —in ' canon,' as it is called.
There is, of course, tho usual contrasting
' Trio ' in the middle of the Movement, and then the canonic portion is repeated.
FOURTH MOVEMENT. This has a dance-like first section, succeeded by a new idea in a different rhythm. The Movement is made up of these alternations-a packet of pleasing varieties. THE two Trios which Mendelssohn wrote for Piano, Violin and 'Cello do not rank among his most famous works, but they are admirable examples of his sincerity and tunefulness, and every Movement in them is put together with great accomplishment. There are four Movements in the D Minor
Trio (his Op. 49). The FIRST is suavely hurried, well marked in its three-beat rhythm and not concerned With any devices of prettiness.
A more tranquil and melodious SECOND MOVE
MENT follows, in four-square time. Then comes a Scherzo, a word that, to a musician, means larks. Mendelssohn's larking is cheerful, but he is careful not to offend againat the proprieties. LAST MOVEMENT. This opens with a rhythm that is seldom absent for long; it is tapped in chords or sung in melodies, now soft, now loud. This is the most characteristic of the four Movements.

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.
