: A Recital

ISOLDE MENGES (Violin)
HAROLD SAMUEL (Pianoforte)
ALL the three Movements in this work (it is the composer's hundredth ' Opus ') have something of the reflective east of thought that we often find in Brahms. There is vigour, but less of the sheer bursting forth of energy that most Sonatas display, especially in their first and last Movements.
In the FIRST Movement the Piano has the first main tune (note that it contains the characteristic Brahms ' arpeggio ' figure-here a four-note motif that walks up the scalic stairs two or three steps at a time).
The Violin repeats this melody and then comes the second main tune, similar in feeling to the first, gentle and amiaDie. The Piano begins this also. The melody can be distinguished by the left hand's three-notes-to-a-beat on the first two beats of the bar, against the right hand's two notes-a ' cross - rhythmic' effect of which
Brahms frequently made use.
There is a subsidiary theme, that begins with a brisk ' postman's knock' rhythm of three notes. On these melodies the Movement is built.
The SECOND Movement contains both tranquil and lively sections, the two moods alternating. The slow portion comes twice, and the lively one three times, its last appearance consisting of a Variation on part of its graceful melody.
The THIRD MOVEMENT is an engagingly happy
Rondo, wherein the opening Violin tune comes round several times, with intervening episodes of rather strongly contrasted moods.

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.
