: A Sonata Recital

Florence HOOTON (violoncello)
DOROTHY MANLEY (pianoforte)
Dohnanvi's chamber music, which follows the Brahms tradition, is distinguished by its fine craftsmanship and invention. The 'Cello Sonata in B flat, although an early work, is very characteristic of the composer's style. Without any attempt to exploit virtuosity for its own sake, the writing for the 'cello sonata is both brilliant and effective. The majestic and imposing first movement and the expressive slow movement show a certain affinity to Brahms. There is a lively Scherzo which is particularly attractive. The last movement is interesting for the way in which the composer makes use of themes from the previous movements and welds them into the texture of a theme and variations.

Vienna, which has been the home at one time or another of most of the greatest composers and executants, possesses one of the oldest, and certainly one of the most distinguished, existing orchestras in Central Europe. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1842 by the composer of the opera The Merry Wives of Windsor, Otto Nicolai , whose object was to provide first-rate performances of Beethoven's symphonies. The members of the Vienna Philharmonic were, and are still, drawn from the State Opera.
Nicolai's efforts won success, and consequently he continued to give orchestral concerts at irregular intervals for the next five years, until he was succeeded by Heinrich Esser. In 1860 the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra became an independent organisation, choosing its own conductor and committee, and Felix Dessoff , assistant conductor at the Opera and professor at the Conservatorium, was appointed conductor. Regular series of concerts were established, the programmes of which were very progressive.
Then came a line of great conductors, including Richter, Mahler, who made the Vienna Philharmonic one of the foremost orchestras in Europe. Its playing is characterised by a flexibility, a virtuosity, and a beauty of tone that are incomparable.

Led by LAURANCE TURNER

Glinka's Life for the Tsar, the earliest Russian opera of any artistic value, will celebrate its centenary next year. It is a very remarkable work, considering that the composer was only a half-trained amateur.
The subject of the opera-a humble peasant's sacrifice of his life to save his sovereign during a Polish invasion in the seventeenth century—was suggested to Glinka by a high Court official ; the libretto was written by the Tsarevich's secretary; Nicholas I accepted the dedication and ordered the cadets of the Officers' School to attend the performances. The whole opera is a glorification of patriotism and the Tsardom; none the less it is still performed in Soviet Russia as Ivan Susanin (the name of the hero), which was actually the title Glinka originally gave his work.

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.
