Adagio (from five piano pieces) Sonata in A, Op. 120
Schubert wrote over a dozen piano sonatas which in form followed the clasical style of Haydn and Mozart. As Schubert was first and foremost
-a great song-writer, it is not unnatural that his sonatas are to some extent influenced by his song-writing. Where for the most part Weber, says William Clock , 'gave old formulae a new brilliance, Schubert s style is altogether new and unique. It is enriched by the whole range of the accompaniment figures in his songs, but more deeply by that quality in his songs which
Alfred Einstein describes as an equipoise between imagery and emotion.'
A portrait of Stephen C. Foster
Compiled by Roy Speer. Radio score by Jack Beaver. Chorus and Orchestra conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
Produced by Douglas Moodie
The composer of 'The old folks at home ', ' My old Kentucky home ', 'Oh, Susannah!', Camptown Races', and 'Old Black Joe ' died in 1864. ' His genius enabled him to touch the hearts of his countrymen in a way that few others have done with his many simple songs written in the manner of Negro folk songs ; while the popularity of Christy minstrels in this country brought the fame of them across the Atlantic so that today, as the milkboy whistles them on his rounds, he may well imagine they are as English as he is.
The composition of the programme owes a great deal to the assistance of Twentieth-Century Fox Films , who have made a biographical film about Stephen Foster , called Swanee River.

The story of how Czechoslovakia's airmen are continuing the fight for freedom, by John Midgley and Josef Schrich
Produced by Robert Kemp
Before Germany invaded Czechoslovakia in 1939 there was a strong Czechoslovakian air force, many of its pilots being men who had distinguished themselves in world aeronautics and held records of one kind or another. Although Germany seized Czechoslovakia's aerodromes and the majority of her planes, some of the pilots and crews made their escape.
At the beginning of the war they formed a unit in France and saw much active service following the German break-through. After the French capitulation Czech airmen made their way to this country, where they are now ready to help in its defence.
The story of these Czech airmen is now to be told by Josef Schrich and John Midgley. Midgley is a Manchester journalist, and Schrich a Czechoslovakian refugee journalist now working in Manchester. They have co-operated in several recent radio programmes.
