BRAHMS' VIOLIN SONATAS
Played by MARJORIE HAYWARD (Violin) and O'CONNOR MORRIS (Pianoforte)
IN the second Sonata wo have one of Brahms'. interesting experiments in design. It will be remembered that the slow movement and the Scherzo alternate one with the other, to form only one movement. The first is a smoothly-flowing movement in amiable mood, with the pianoforte beginning the theme, and the last is a gracious Allegretto in place of tho more bustling and energetic Finale which Brahms often gives us.

: An Orchestral Concert

Norman Allin (Bass)
Albert Sammons (Violin) The Wireless Symphony Orchestra
Conducted by Percy Pitt
In Gounod's "Philomon and Baucis" the ancient Olympic deities are treated with somewhat scant respect,' and the author of the libretto shows us them as subject to the usual mortal weaknesses and failings. Jupiter has brought Vulcan with him to earth, and the Armourer has left his underground forges most unwillingly. Ever since he made himself a laughing-stock by his unlucky wooing of Venus, he has been shy of facing the other gods, or even mortals, feeling that they must all know of the goddess' scornful treatment of him. In this song he gives vent to his annoyance at having to visit the upper world, and tells how much happier he is in the dark caverns of his underground forge.
In Gounod's orchestral accompaniment, the ringing of hammer oil on anvil is rhythmically heard almost throughout the song, and sometimes an actual anvil and hammer are specially added for the purpose to the usual orchestra.
Massenet's opera on the Great Spanish hero "Le Cid" naturally embodies a good deal of Spanish verve and rhythm in its music, and in the ballet, especially, he is notably successful in the fresh and melodious way in which he gives us something of the Southern atmosphere.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
