: Chamber Music

YVES TINAYRE (Tenor)
THE CATTERALL STRING QUARTET :
ARTHUR CATTERALL (Violin) ; LAWRENCE TURNER (Violin); BERNARD SHORE (Viola);
JOHANN HOCK (Violoncello)
THIS is one of the famous early set of Quartets, six in number, in which Beethoven at the ago of thirty gave such emphatic and unmistakable assurance to the musical world of his day, that he was destined to surpass all that had previously been accomplished in chamber music. For though they are all, naturally, in the style of his first period, roflecting the influence of his models, Haydn and Mozart, it is possible to point in each one to passages, not to say whole movements, which neither of those great masters could d conceivably have written, and which proclaim the opening of a new chapter in the history of the String Quartet.
RICH and sonorous throughout, this Quintet for strings is terse and compact as compared with some of Brahms' earlier chamber music. The shapeliness and simplicity of the opening melody in the first movement is one of the easiest of all Drahms' themes to follow in its subsequent appearances.
The next movement is quite unusual, combining a somewhat tragic slow section with what might have been the Scherzo. The two are interchanged in a most interesting way. The first solemn theme occurred to Brahms originally many years before as a pianoforte piece which he called Sarabande.
In contrast to the smooth mood of much of the second movement, the third is in the highest spirits throughout; it, too, is terse and concise, like the first.

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.
