: The Station Trio

Frank Thomas (Violin); Frank Whitnall (Violoncello); Vera McComb Thomas (Pianoforte)

Beethoven, when he played his own works, did not as a player always get from the critical the high praise they gave to him as a composer. When this Trio was first heard in public, three years after its completion, the young Moscheles (later to be known as a famous Pianist and Teacher) wrote in his diary that the music was 'full of originality', but that the Composer's playing 'lacked clearness and precision'; still, the critic 'observed several traces of the grand style of playing'. There are four Movements in the Trio.
The First is cheerful and bold, very clearly made out of two main tunes, with scarcely any subsidiary matter.
The Second Movement is a gay, jesting piece, a Scherzo. In the middle section an odd, creeping theme is set forth in fugal style, each instrument having a cut at it in turn. Then the first section is repeated, and in the Coda (tailpiece) we have recollections of the chief themes of both sections.
The Third Movement is a set of five Variations on a simple, appealing theme.
The Last Movement is a Rondo in which two main tunes alternate, with (after the second appearance of the opening one) an episode of new matter in the middle. Then the two Main Tunes reappear, and a Coda at full speed exhilaratingly winds up.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
