: CHAMBER MUSIC

From. Birmingham
LENA WOOD (Violin) and JOYCE ROLLITT
(Pianoforte)
THIS Sonata, the last of the three that make up Beethoven's Op. 30, contains a large proportion of eaptivatingly merry music.
The very first notes of the FIRST MOVEMENT are infectiously gay, and the alternations of the bustling, running, twelve-notes-to-a-bar motif, and the dancing six-notcs-to-a-bar motif, are piquantly kept up.
A rather long, demurely attractive Minuet, in Haydnish style, follows as SECOND MOVEMENT.
The FINALEdances along, fleet-footed, innocently joyous, full of the delight of graceful motion.
THE 'Revolutionary' Study, though not so called by the composer, is one of the few pieces amongst his works which we know to have been the outcome of a definite experience. The taking of Warsaw by the Russians in 1831. that seemed to mean the end of Polish national aspirations, aroused him to vehement expression, and into this stormy music we may read all his rebellious pride and grief for his country.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
