: CHAMBER MUSIC

From Birmingham
THE LEONARD HIRSCH STRING
QUARTET: LEONARD HIRSCH
(First Violin), THOMAS MATTHEWS , MURICE WARD (Viola), HAYDN ROGERSON ('Cello) IN the C Sharp Minor Quartet (written in 1826, a few months before Beethoven's death) there are seven Movements. All are to be played without a break. The FIRST MOVEMENT (Slow and very expressive) is a Fugue. When this has been expounded in simple style, the tune on which it is based is given out by the First Violin twice as quickly as at first, and a little ' episode ' is built up. Later the tune is heard in the 'Cello, in notes twice as long as at first. Soon after, the Movement comes to a long held note and a pause, and so begins the SECOND MOVEMENT (Very quick and lively).
This straightforward piece of energetic music is followed by the THIRD MOVEMENT (Moderately fast), which is really only a few bars in declamatory style, bringing in the FOURTH MOVEMENT (Rather slow and in a singing style), a set of Variations on a graceful, engaging theme. FIFTH MOVEMENT (Very quick). The Scherzo, a ripe piece of jesting, and of tremendous energy. SIXTH MOVEMENT (Slow). Again a very short
Movement, that says much in few notes. In the SEVENTH MOVEMENT (Quick) we feel once more Beethoven's elemental power, and something of the introspection that grew upon him. This is big music in every sense.

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.
