ALBERT SAMMONS (Solo Violin), GORDON BRYAN (Solo Pianoforte)
Sonata (for Violin and Pianoforte) in A Major Bach Andante , Allegro Assai , Andante un Poco, Presto
THE Bach Sonata in A Major is the second of the six Sonatas written at Cothen. when
Bach was in the middle thirties, End is in four Movements : an opening slowish, smoothly gliding piece, less than forty bars long; a longer dance-like Movement; a meditative Movement, still shorter than the first; and a joyous Finale, that ' runs on velvet,' as the saying is.
Theme and Variations
CHABRIER should have gone in for law, like the dutiful Ron of an advocate and grandson of a judge ; but music called too strongly. He was an exuberant soul, in figure somewhat Chestertonian. and his music is a mirror of his vivacious, picturesque personality.
His Stately Minuet eame from a set of ten Picturesque Pieces, originally written for Pianoforte.
Allegro Con Animo ; Molto Adagio ; Con Brio
BOTH the father and grandfather of Eugene Goossens were well-known conductors.
Goossens the Third, though only thirty-three, is distinguished not only as Conductor, but also as Composer. Ho has written some striking pieces of chamber music, several of which have aroused a good deal of interest on account of their piquant harmonies and imaginative treatment. The Sonata for Violin and Piano displays more feeling than does some of this composer's work. It is in three Movements, which are respectively quick and spirited, very slow and expressive, and brilliantly forceful.

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.
