BEETHOVEN'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS
Played by EDWARD ISAACS
Sonata, in F Minor, Op. 2, No. 1
Allegro ; Adagio ; Menuetto and Trio ; Prestissimo
THE form of the Sonata,' wrote Wagner, ' is the transparent veil through which
Beethoven seems to have looked at all music.' And it would seem to follow that the sonatas in their grandeur, their variety, and their emotional progression, faithfully reflect the composer's artistic life.
Beethoven wrote thirty-two sonatas for the pianoforte, the first (dedicated to Haydn) in 1796. and the last in 1822, five years before his death. Historians are agreed that the development of Beethoven's art is divided into three periods, each marking a definite style. The sonatas to be heard this week are placed by most critics in the earliest period, which, built at first on Haydn and Mozart, progressed gradually towards the individual style that was to be so marvellously expressed in the best creative years of his life--the so-called middle period. But when, listening to the sonatas, speculations of this sort quickly give way to unquenchable amazement at the infinite variety and beauty of the themes, the splendour of the designs, and the emotional depths revealed in the sonatas, whether the listener is hearing them for the first time or the hundred and first.

: ' INDUSTRY AND TRADE'

Introductory Talk
The Rt. Hon. Sir EDWARD HILTON YOUNG, G.B.E.,
D.S.O., M.P.
SIR HILTON YOUNG showed himself an admirable broadcaster last spring in his series on ' National Housekeeping.' He was in the War a distinguished sailor, and is now a great financial expert; he was Financial Secretary to the Treasury from 1921 to 1922, and has served on several Financial Missions and Royal Commissions. He is now giving an introduction to the ' Industry and Trade' section of the Changing World ' symposium; he willexplain the scope and purpose of the series, which is, briefly, to give some account of the recent history and present position of industry and commerce. The language will not be technical, and the talks will be directed towards explaining the present financial circumstances of the ordinary man. The twenty-four talks are arranged on a continuous plan, so that listeners should arrange, if possible, to bear them all. A pamphlet is published in connection with this series.

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.
