BEETHOVEN'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS
Played by EDWARD ISAACS
Sonata in G, Op. 14, No. 2
Allegro; Andante; Scherzo (Assai Allegro)
T IKE the Sonata played yesterday, this, the second of two dedicated to the Baroness von Braun, is conceived for the most part in happy mood. The first principal tune is heard at the very beginning, and is set forth at some length before the second appears. The latter, in thirds, goes tripping downwards in a scale. It leads to a little exuberant flourish before the end of the first section and again in the working-out section shows the way to some vivacious running about. The second movement begins with crisp, detached chords, a rather march-like theme of some solemnity, and the movement is made up of variants of the tune, with a little coda at the end in which it almost reappears in its first simple form. There is then a Scherzo, very quick, the right hand beginning the merry tune alone at first. The middle section has a more flowing melody with a rippling left-hand accompaniment, and then the first part returns in an altered guise. Although it is an unusual final movement for a Sonata, the end leaves the hearer with no sense of incompleteness.

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.
