: A SONATA RECITAL

HELEN LUARD (Violoncello)
JEAN HAMILTON (Pianoforte)
BETHOVEN left five Sonatas for Violoncello and Pianoforte, two belonging to his early period, one in the middle of his career, and two quite lato works. This is the middle one, written when he was at the very, height of his powers, and before there had begun to be in his music anything of that sombre and mysterious order which makes such things as his last string quartets a little terrifying.
This Sonata is throughout melodious and good-humoured. The first movement begins with the violoncello playing the first tune alone. The pianoforte takes it up and it is concisely set forth. The second principal theme is a double one, in which the two melodies are interchanged between the instruments ; one is a series of scales and the ether a slower moving tune, beginning, as many of the world'.-; great tunes do, with the notes of tho common chord.
Tho Scherzo, which comes next, is meant, like many of Beethoven's, to bo repeated twice, so that the first part is heard throe times, and the alternative section, the Trio, twice. Tho featureof the first part is the way in which the instruments play the fhemo one a note behind the other.
There is a very short, slow movement which is really no more than an introduction to the bustling and light-hearted last movement.

: Mr. W. POWELL OWEN: 'The Small Poultry Keeper-I, Winfer Eggs from Backward Pouitry'

pOULTRY-KEEPING on a small scale is apt to lose a good deal of its appeal in winter, and to the ordinary amateur nothing is more depressing than the sight of four bedraggled hens in a dripping backyard on a foggy day. Mr. W. Powell Owen is, however, an expert, and in the series of talks, of which this evening's is the first, he will-give some very valuable advice as to how to make backyard poultry-farming enjoyable and profitable all through the year. and how to induce backyard fowls to yield winter eggs.

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.
