ERIC FOGG (Pianoforte)
DAISY KENNEDY (Violin) SOON after the War, great interest was aroused in English musical circlos when it was announced that Sir Edward Elgar had turned his attention to chamber music, and that three works in this class would soon appear. Eigar had then turned sixty years of age, yet ho had written no chamber music since the days of his early, scarcely representative works. This Sonata for Violin and Piano was the first of the new group of chamber works to appear. It is in three Movements. The First MOVEMENT is a bold, vigorous pieco, strenuous music for both instruments. The SECOND MOVEMENT is called a ' Romance.'
It is fanciful-a mixture of waywardness and grace. There is a big climax, but when, as it were, the half-way line is passed, the Violin is muted and an air of mystery comes over the music. The FINALE is mostly a lively, energetic Movement, but is much varied in mood and manner, and contains reminiscences of other parts of the Sonata, very eloquently brought in.

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.
