: Beethoven's Sonatas: The Eighth Sonata

Violin: Leonard Busfield
Pianoforte: Vera McComb Thomas

The Eighth Sonata
This Sonata, the last of the three that make up Beethoven's Op. 30, contains a large proportion of captivatingly merry music.
The very first notes of the First Movement are infectiously gay, and the alternations of the bustling, running, twelve-notes-to-a-bar motif, and the dancing six-notes-to-a-bar motif, are piquantly kept up.
A rather long, demurely attractive Minuet, in Haydnish style, follows as Second Movement.
The Finale dances along, fleet-footed, innocently joyous, full of the delight of graceful motion.

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.
