BRAHMS' SONATAS FOR VIOLIN AND PIANO
FORTE
Played by ADILA FACHIRI and KATHLEEN LONG
Sonata for Violin and Pianoforte in A, Op. 100
All three of the Sonatas for violin and pianoforte which Brahms left can fairly claim to be favourites alike with performers and audiences. They are all admirably laid out to display the best qualities of both instruments, and it is often said that the violin parts might have been written by a violinist, so well does each one ' play itself,' in the phrase used by fiddlers. The first was not published until 1880—his forty-seventh year, though we know that when he went to Schumann, with an introduction from Joachim, years earlier, a violin sonata was among the music he took with him. The first, in G major, to be played on Thursday, is certainly a work which shows him arrived at the full maturity of his powers, and in his most genial and kindly mood. It has the special interest of being closely associated with two of his songs-' Regenlied ' (Song of the Rain) and ' Nachklang ' (Echo) : the last movement begins with a theme like that used in the song to suggest the dripping rain. In the second Sonata we have one of Brahms' interesting experiments in design. It will be remembered that the slow movement and the Scherzo alternate one with the other, to form only one movement. The first is a smoothly-flowing movement in amiable mood, with the pianoforte beginning the theme, and the last is a gracious Allegretto in place of the more bustling and energetic Finale which Brahms often gives us.

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.
