: For the Schools: Great Leaders and Movements in Welsh History - Dafydd Ab Gwilym and the Golden Age of Welsh Poetry

by Professor E. Ernest Hughes

Dafydd Ab Gwilym is the most celebrated of Welsh mediaeval poets who lived five and a half centuries ago, and he has been described as the earliest of the great singers of wild nature in medieval Europe.


Speaker: Professor E. Ernest Hughes

: The Beethoven Trios: No. XVI

The Station Trio: Frank Thomas (Violin), Ronald Harding (Violoncello), Evelyn Amey (Pianoforte)
Trio in B Flat, Op. 11
Allegro con brio, Theme and Variations

Composed originally for Clarinet, Violoncello and Pianoforte, this Trio is often played with the violin replacing the clarinet, which it can do quite satisfactorily here. Slightly built, like the early Trios which were broadcast at the beginning of this Beethoven series, it is all melodious and easy to understand, and it has the special interest of having its last movement based on a tune which Beethoven borrowed specially for the purpose. It is an old air, popular in its day, which would long ago have been forgotten but for his use of it - a merry little tune on which Beethoven makes a series of fresh and wholesome variations.


Violinist: Frank Thomas
Cellist: Ronald Harding
Pianist: Evelyn Amey

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.
