The SPA PIANOFORTE Trio, directed by EDNA WILLOUGHBY
BEETHOVEN was twenty-five before he published his Opus 1. This consists of three Pianoforte Trios, of which we are to hear the first. This has the usual four Movements, the first genial and expansive, the second graceful and suave, if not very deep in feeling, the third a sportive Scherzo (in place of the Minuet of the Haydn-Mozart fashion), and the last a piece abounding in joy, as of an athlete trained for a race, and delighting in the use of his supple limbs.
THE first and best-known of Schumann's Trios for Piano,
Violin and Violoncello is in four movements. The FIRST is energetic and fervent. The SECOND is a brisk Scherzo, with a quieter middle part. The THIRD MOVEMENT is slow; Schumann himself describes it by asking that it shall be played 'with intimate feeling'; whilst the LAST MOVEMENT, he directs, is to be performed ' with fire.'

Concerto Grosso in C Minor, Op. 6, No. 3
Corelli, arr. R. Erlbach
Largo ; Grave ; Vivace ; Allegro
(First Performance)
ARCANGELO CORELLI (1653-1713) was one of the founders of the modem art of the violin. Both in his playing and in his compositions he set a model of dignity and grace which became the tradition of the ' Corelli ' school of violinists and viotm playing in Italy, a tradition which ruled the whole violin world until the virtuoso or 'fire-work' school broke away in rivalry.
Corelli's ' Great Concertos '
(Concerti grossi) are similar in their general planning and instrumental grouping to those of Handel, which have often been represented in radio programmes and described in these columns. The stringed orchestra for which t&ey are designed consists of a small group that often works independently in a manner akin to that of solo playing and a larger group that acts in support.
Certain differences in ancient and modern practice give scope for the re-editing of these works.
It is a modem re-editing of the C Minor Concerto that is now to be given, as far as is known, for the first time. The work has four Movements, of which two are slow and two quick.

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.
