Allegro moderato; Scherzo — Allegro vivace ; Andante moderato —Allegro moderato
COMPLETED in 1926, this Sonata is in three movements. The first is in the usual form with two main subjects, the first a flowing tune, and the second a rather more rhythmic theme. The second movement, Scherzo, is in the unusual time of 15-8. The Trio, the traditional middle section, is in slower form, and after the return of the first part, there is a reflective Coda, the movement ending with the unexpected return of the first subject. The last movement, less strictly in conventional form than the others,
. begins with a slow expressive melody. A minor section of rather gloomy character follows, and after the first subject has returned, a recitative passage leads to a new section, rising to a big climax. Then the same recitative brings us to the final part of the movement, based on what has gone before.
The attentive listener will hear how the first subject of the first movement, as well as the theme from its transition section, are interwoven at intervals throughout the Sonata.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
