From'Birmingham
THE NORRISSTANLEY TRIO : NORRIS STANLEY
(Violin), 0. LAMPE (Violoncello), ARTHUR WOODALL (Pianoforte) THE CATHEDRAL MALEVOICE QUARTET : FRANK WHARTON , PHILIP TAYLOR , CHARLES BUNN ,
CECIL WATSON
THOUGH Mendelssohn's two Trios do not
1 contain any of his deepest thoughts, they are full of suave melody, and the graceful, adroit writing for the instruments is noteworthy.
Of the four Movements in the D Minor Trio
(his Op 49) we are to hear the tranquil Second
Movement, and then the Finale, which opens with an oft-recurring rhythm. Tapped m chords or sung iu melodies, now soft, now loud, it charmingly pervades the Movement.

CONCERNING Saint-Saëns' Second Piano
'Concerto it is said that Rubinstein, the great Pianist, suggested that Saint-Saëns and he should together appear in a concert as Soloist and Conductor respectively. There were three weeks before the event was due, and the Composer promised to write a new Concerto for the occasion.
He did it easily, with several days to spare, and as ever, played his work brilliantly.
We are to Hear the last two of the Concerto's three Movements.
The Second Movement (Quick and playful) is a dainty piece of work. The opening (plucked Strings, to an undercurrent of drum rhythm) is a charming way of launching a Movement. In a moment the Piano sets its capricious dance going, and we know wo are in for ,a jolly time.
The Third Movement (the Finale) as also a very lively piece in the stylo of the excitable, Tarantella dance.

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.
