: CHAMBER MUSIC

From Birmingham
THE MARY ABBOTT PIANOFORTE Trio : FRANK
VENTON (Violin), HARRY STANIER ('Cello),
MARY ABBOTT (Pianoforte)
IN Mendelssohn's Two Trios there is much to admire-in particular their sincerity, tunefulness and good, clean workmanship.
The D Minor Trio (his Op. 49).has four Movements. The First is suavely hurried and well marked in its three-beat rhythm. The Second is more tranquil, and very melodious, as it goes steadily along in four-square time. The deft Scherzo follows, and then the last Movement, the most characteristic of the four, opens with a rhythm that is seldom absent for long. It is tapped in chords or sung in melodies, now loud, now soft, all through the 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
