Conducted By: Edward Clark

: ALBERT SAMMONS (Violin) and GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte)

GRIEG wrote three Sonatas for Violin and Piano. The Second is Opus 13 (i.e., approximately his thirteenth work). It is in three separate Movements.
The FIRST MOVEMENT has a short Introduction (slow, sorrowful) in which Piano and Violin rhapsodize, partly forecasting what is to follow. The Movement proper (quick, lively) has two Main Tunes. The First is energetic and rhythmical, typically Norwegian and Griegian. The Second is smoother and less emphatic. The SECOKD MOVEMENT (fairly quick, tranquil) opens with the Piano very quietly playing a simple little tune, which the Violin repeats. Presently it is repeated passionately, in a fuller form. Then follows a middle section, sweet and highly contrasted. Finally the first part is repeated.
The THIRD MOVEMENT (quick, animated) is an exultant dance. It is (like most of Grieg's last Movements) fairly complicated in construction, but simple in spirit.

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.
