Sonata, Op. 19; in G Minor, in three Movements
Sjogren Allegro vivace ; Andante ; Finale, Presto
ALTHOUGH Emil Sjogren was an ardent
Scandinavian, his music is not so obviously of the Norseland as .Grieg's. Like his olderfellow countryman, he studied a good deal in Germany and toured as a performer in more than one country of Europe. And the influence of these experiences can be traced in his work much more than it can in Grieg's. For many years he was the organist of the St. John's Church in Stockholm, and enjoyed the reputation of being one of the foremost performers in his native country. He is best known by three fine sonatas for violin and pianoforte, but he wrote besides a great many smaller pieces with the same finely lyrical qualities as we know in Grieg's, and many melodious songs.
A Television Transmission by the Baird Process will take place during this programme
(356.3 m. Sound; 261.3 m. Vision)

CLAIRE CROIZA (Soprano)
THE GRILLER STRING QUARTET:
TTNLIKE much of Kodaly's buoyantly cheerful music, this, the second of his string quartets, presents the melancholy side of the Hungarian character. The opening of the first movement conjures up sad thoughts, and, as it goes on, a feeling of conflict makes its way into the music. It rises at times to a pitch of tense excitement and falls again into a pensive melancholy. The slow movement, too, is for the most part in sombre tone, though at one point the '.cello leads us to a momentary outburst of mirth : there is a hint, too, like a far-off echo, of the gay dance measure of the third and last movement. It follows the second without a break, entering with a suggestion of hearty laughter. But in it, strife and conflict can still bo imagined, and it comes to an end with furious impetuosity.
The thoughtful listener will notice that the instruments arc often used in groups of two, either the violins set off against the viola and cello, or the inner voices against the outer. And sometimes the first violin and viola join hands, with the second and the 'cello responding. But there are also passages where all four voices take part independently in animated discussion.
SIR JOHN McEWEN , Principal of the Royal Academy of Music, has written fourteen string quartets, of which this, the eighth, is the best known. Written in the South of France— hence the title ' Biscay '-it records such impressions as, in the first movement, the wild, wind-swept shore of the Bay; in the second, the solitude of the Dunes, and in the third, the cheery life of the Biscay oyster-gatherers.

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.

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.
