THE STRATTON STRING QUARTET:
GEORGE STRATTON (Violin); WILLIAM MANUEL (Violin); LAWRENCE LEONARD (Viola);
JOHN MOORE (Violoncello)
THE third and last, of Brahms' string quartets appeared in 1876, his forty-fourth year. For the most part lighthearted in mood, it has moments of real merriment alongside of its melodious beauty; the themo of the last movement, especially, is sheer boyish fun. But all through, the music can speak very well for itself ; one thing in particular which the attentive listener will hear, is that the viola is again and again given very effective prominence.
ERNEST JOHN MOERAN began to compose already during his schooldays at Upping-ham, where music has always been enthusiastically cultivated. Like many others of the youngor generation of English composers, his original work goes hand-in-hand with an enthusiasm for native folk music; that of Norfolk, where a good part of his life has been spent has always attracted him specially, as listeners have already had opportunities of hearing for themselves in his 'Norfolk Rhapsodies' and other works.
He has himself collected a number of Norfolk folk tunes for the Folk Song Society, and if the themes in this String Quartet are not in themelves actual melodies of the land, they have something of the direct simplicity and something of the real. expressiveness of folk song.

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.
