THIS, the most famous of Beethoven s ten
Sonatas for Violin and Piano, was dedicated to Kreutzer, a French violinist.
The first movement opens with about a minute of slow introduction. It then gets away rapidly with the First Main Tune, an abrupt affair of short, sharp strokes on the Violin. The Second Main Tune is hymn-like and in a major key.
After this comes a Third Main Tune, bouncing up the minor scale. It is this tune which recurs most often in the rest of the movement.
The Second Movement is an Air with Variations. The Air is lengthy, and contains in its first notes the elements of syncopation. The Variations are very clear, and can be followed without description.
The Third Movement is quick and jig-like.
In the First Main Tune the Piano supplies a part in similar rhythm to the Violin's vivacious melody. Immediately afterwards the positions are reversed. The Second Main Tune is in two parts-a flippant time and a poetical one. The flippant one (in the Violin) is nearly related not only to the First Main Tune, but also to the prevailing tune of the First Movement. The contrasting poetical tune, lovingly treated, forms an effective contrast in an otherwise entirely brilliant movement.

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.
