FRANK THOMAS (Violin), RONALD HARDING (Violoncello), HUBERT PENGELLY (Pianoforte) Trio in C Minor, Op. 1, No. 3
First a.nd Second Movements
THE last of the three Trios which make up
Beethoven's Opus I is conspicuously bigger both in conception and in actual dimension than the other two, and at the very beginning of the first movement there is sounded a note of deeper seriousness than anything in them. It has, however, its moments of real brightness, and even of good spirits, too.


Violin: Ronald Harding
Pianoforte: Hubert Pengelly

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.
