: CHAMBER MUSIC

From Birmingham
THE LIVERPOOL CHAMBER MUSIC PLAYERS :
Louis COHEN (Violin), S. LEDGARD (Violoncello), EDITH BRYOM (Pianoforte)
HROUGHOUT almost all Dvorak's work we feel the presence of the national element of the Bohemian folk-songs and folk-dances that ho heard in the village alehouse or on the village green.
A Dumka is a piece of a passionate elegiac character, and the word Dumky is the plural form. Dvorak's Dumky Trio, for Piano, Violin and 'Cello, consists of a succession of five brief Movements which have in common a passionate emotion.
In the First Movement a slow Introduction leads to a quick portion. The Second Movement is slow, the Third moves at a moderate pace, the Fourth is quiok, and the Last, after a slow and dignified Introduction goes off at a gay pace.

Theme and Variation from Trio in A Mimr
Tchaikovsky
ONE spring day in 1873 the Professors of the Moscow Conservatoire, Tchaikovsky and Nicho]as Rubinstein among them, shut up their books and pianos and had a trip into the country, hearing, during the day, some folk songs, sung by village lads and lasses.
When Rubinstein died, Tchaikovsky commemorated his friend in a Trio, inscribed ' To the memory of a great artist,' and with the recollection of their happy picnic in mind, used one of the folk-songs they had heard that day as the theme of the extensive Second (and last) Movement of the Trio.
In this Trio till the resources of the instruments are used, with remarkable effect. One almost feels, at times, that a whole Orchestra is at work.
The Trio is in two Movements only. In the Second Movement, the Air with Variations, the Theme is presented in many styles, appearing now as the basis of a Waltz (Variation VI), now as the ' Subject ' of a Fugue (Variation X), and sometimes in more sombrely expressive . forms. Variation XII, the last (Quick, resolute and fiery), is extended almost to the proportions of a separate Movement, and at the final page we have the sad rhythm of a Funeral March.

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.
