: The Centenary of a Great Work

Trio in B Flat, Op. 99 (Schubert)
Written in October, 1827
Performed by the Station Trio. Frank Thomas (Violin), Ronald Harding (Violoncello), Hubert Pengelly (Pianoforte)

Schumann once, with characteristic enthusiasm, wrote of this Trio by Schubert: 'One glance at it, and this poor world of ours appears fresh and bright'.
It is the first of Schubert's two Piano Trios (which were written in close succession), and is in four separate Movements.
First Movement (Moderately quick). Schubert sets out at once with a splendid exulting tune, played by Violin and 'Cello in octaves. Presently Piano takes up the Tune, accompanied by a soft, repeated chord in the Violin, and a few low plucked notes in the 'Cello. Then all three get busy with fragments of it.
After a while, the music quietens down, 'Cello pauses on a high note, then, starting with that note, begins the tender Second Main Tune.
A Third Tune is used to round off this section; then a long 'Development' section follows, in which the two Main Tunes are beautifully varied and combined. Finally, the first section is repeated with only slight alterations.
Second Movement (At a steady pace). It is noticeable in this Movement that the 'Cello is almost continually playing in its highly poetic upper range.
Third Movement, Scherzo (Fast). The Italian word 'scherzo' means a joke, but it is here. as frequently, used as the title of a piece which is, in general, very lively and full of good spirits.
Fourth Movement, Rondo (Quick and lively). This Rondo is a long Movement, and is in reality, rather complicated. But, in effect, it is very light and even frivolous.

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.
