: CELLO AND PIANO

played by Lilly Phillips (cello)
Anne Mukle (piano)
Beethoven's Cello Sonata in G minor, Op. 5, No. 2, was dedicated to Frederick William II of Prussia, a nephew of Frederick the Great. Frederick William was anything but Prussian in character; he was not a success as a ruler; he was not a disciplinarian; he was a bon viveur and an enthusiastic patron of music. Himself a cellist, he commissioned Beethoven to write two sonatas for him. He had previously commissioned Mozart to write the three famous ' Roi de Prusse ' quartets for him, in' which the cello plays a prominent part.

: PAGANINI

Virtuoso of the Court
(Born 1784. Died May 27, 1840)
A commemoration of a great violinist
Alfredo Campcli will play
Concerto in D and Witches' dance
Orchestra conducted by Gordon Thorne
The concert will be preceded by a short talk by Maurice Brown
The Genoese violinist, Niccolo Paganini , was one of the most astonishing figures of the nineteenth century. His brilliant fiddling, weird appearance, and romantic personality fascinated every class of society throughout Europe.
It was actually believed by many people that he was the Devil's disciple. When he played the 'Witches' Dance' in Vienna, someone in the audience said that he saw the Devil, who bore a striking resemblance to Paganini, guiding the violinist's fingers and bow. This fantastic story gained such credence that in 1828 he was obliged to publish a letter from his mother to prove that he was of human origin.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
