SOCIETY

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF TUUSIC

BACH, played by SIDNEY HARRISON (Pianoforte). MURRAY LAMBERT
(Violin), and JOSEPH SLATER (Flute)
From ' Musical Offering':
Sonata for Flute, Violin and Piano, Movements
Three and Four
Canonic Fugue for Violin and Piano
THE THIRD MOVEMENT of the Sonata is an expressive slow one, in which Bach treats pome motifs from the three-part Fugue we heard on Wednesday. The Flute and Violin first start duetting sweetly, the Keyboard supporting, and then in turn introducing the more significant reminiscences of the Fugue.
In the LAST MOVEMENT Bach throws the King's tune into a dancing rhythm and builds a vivacious Fugue on it, working up the liveliness so that at the end all three instruments are going at full pelt.
The last piece that we are to hear is a Fugue in canon form (still on the King's theme), in which the Keyboard instrument is joined by another (Bach does not say what it is to be, but tonight the Violin will be used).
The Canon, or exact copy, is between the Violin and the Pianoforte's right hand, whilst the Pianist's left hand does not copy anything, but plavs its part in building up the Fugue, and near the end gives out the theme as a bass, in full form.
LAST week Mr. St. John Ervine introduced the subject of playmaking and a sense of the theatre. This evening he will begin to particularize, and give some elementary instruction to the aspiring playwright, warning him particularly of certain errors to avoid. The playgoer who wants to have an intelligent and well-informed basis for criticism will also be able to profit by thia talk.

: 'Find THE ORIGINAL'

QUESTIONNAIRES and knowledge tests of every kind are much in vogue, and this evening's broadcast will appeal to all who are tired of them in the stereotyped form. Parodies of very famous authors will be read. and listeners will be invited to detect the originals. They will not have to wait long to know how far they are right, as the answers will be given at the end.

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.
