: CHAMBER MUSIC

From Birmingham
FRANK CANTELL (Violin) and HARRY FREEMAN
(Violin)
OF the music of Spohr. once one of the most popular Composers in Europe. little is now heard in public, though fiddlers rightly cherish his notable works for their instrument.
His Quartets almost all lay too much emphasis on the solo side of Violin playing, but in his Duets there is now and again some admirably-balanced four-part work-when each of the two instruments plays in ' double stopping,' that is, in chords of two notes. Of that kind of writing this Duet in E Flat (his Op. 39, No. 2) contains a good example, of some extent.
BRAHMS much admired the playing of Richard Muhlfeld , a Clarinetist in the orchestra at Meiningen, and after becoming friendly with this artist, he wrote several works having an important part for the Clarinet. The Trio was first played at Meiningen in 1896, by Brahms. Muhlfeld , and Hausmann, the 'Cellist.
There are four Movements, full of grace and power.

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.
