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.
The FIRST MOVEMENT of the C Minor Trio
(the Composer's Op. 66, dedicated to Spohr) has capital vigour and good tunes.
The tranquil SECOND MOVEMENT is in a vein of melody that will be recognized by all who grew up to the sound of Mendelssohn's Songs without words.
Then comes the Scherzo, a word that to a musician means larks. Mendelssohn's larking is cheerful, but he is careful not to offend against the proprieties.
FOURTH MOVEMENT. In this ' Quick, impassioned ' Movement the 'Cello has the First Main Tune, and then (after a little treatment of part of it) a Pianoforte arpeggio brings in the Second Main Tune, loudly announced by the Strings. These two ideas, and one or two tributaries, form the basic material of the Movement, which swing along in bold and brilliant style, the Pianoforte especially having a splendid time of it.
Fight the Good Fight (S. M. B. Monsell , 1811-
1875, to Tune ' Duke St.'—John Hatton , harmonized by Charles Stevenson )
For all the Saints (Bishop How, 1823-1897, to
Tune, ' Sine Nomine '―R. Vaughan Williams , Verses I, 2, 3, 7, and 8) Now thank we all our God (Martin Rinkart ,
1586-164!), trans. Cath. Winkworth) to Tune ' Nun danket '-Johann Cruger , 1598-1662)
HURLSTONE, who died in 1906 at the age of thirty, was a composer of sensitive feeling who left some fragrant Chamber music.
This Trio has four Movements; the First strong and graceful, the slow Movement in thoughtful mood, a high-spirited Scherzo, and a fiery Last Movement that has as its Second chief tune a Scots folk-song

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.
