: MYRA HESS

(piano)
Beethoven's Sonata in C minor,
Op. 111
The C minor Sonata, written in 1822, was the last of Beethoven's sonatas. It was also his crowning achievement in sonata form, for it embraces not only the technical experience of a lifetime but also the maturity of thought of one of the two greatest musical imaginations of all time.
Unlike the classical sonata, this work is divided into only two movements : the first begins with a slow and majestic introduction that is followed by a powerful allegro, one of the chief features of which is the ingenious fugal writing. The second movemen^ is a truly magnificent set of variations on a very beautiful theme, which Beethoven describes as an arietta.

: DVORAK

Symphony No. 2, in D minor played by the BBC Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Dvorak's Symphony No. 2, in D minor, really the seventh of his symphonies, was composed in 1883-85 for the Royal Philharmonic Society, and Dvorak came to London to conduct the first performance in April, 1885.
It is a magnificent work, a finer achievement than the better-known Fourth and Fifth (' New World Symphonies. It shows Dvorak in a serious mood, and in intellectual power it bears an affinity to the symphonies of Brahms.

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.
