STRING TRIOS BY BEETHOVEN
Played by KENNETH SKEAPING (Violin): BERNARD SHORE
(Viola): EDWARD J. ROBINSON (Violoncello)
Op. 8, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Movements
CONTINUING Beethoven's Serenade Trio
(Op. 8), the movements to be played this evening are the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh. Of these the first is somewhat curious inasmuch as it consists of an Adagio which is interrupted by lively scherzo sections in a quite unusual manner though the effect is entirely happy.
Some have even suspected a ' programme,' or underlying story, for the whole work on the strength of this movement, but there is no authority for anything of the kind.
After the Adagio comes a delightful Allegretto alla Polacca, based on a very attractive leading theme and offering great opportunities to the violoncello.
The next movement (Andante quasi allegretto) is an air with variations, giving the principal part in turn to each instrument, while a repetition of the Opening March happily completes and rounds off the whole work.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,

Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
