: VINCENT D'INDY

Violin Sonata, Op. 59
(in four movements) played by Norbert Wethmar (violin)
Arthur Dulay (piano)
Vincent d'lndy's Violin Sonata was composed during the years 1903-4 and therefore represents the composer at the height of his powers. Its construction is similar to that of Franck's violin sonata ; that is to say, it is in cyclic form ; the thematic material of the four movements is derived from three separate motifs which are heard early in the first movement.

: CHOPIN

Twelve Studies, Op. 25 played by I so Elinson (piano)
A hundred years ago people hardly thought of a study as a piece for concert performance. A study, as its name implies, was a technical exercise. But what a magical significance it is given by Chopin, who brought about a minor revolution in music by proving that a technical exercise can be turned into a thing of beauty and a joy for ever !
In an essay on Chopin's Studies,
Op. 25, Mendelssohn said: ' They are all models of bold, indwelling, creative force, truly poetic creations, though not without small blots in their details, but, on the whole, striking and powerful.'

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.
