The Maurice Cole Trio :
Winifred Small (violin)
Kathleen Moorhouse (violoncello)
Maurice Cole (pianoforte)
Chaykovsky's Piano Trio was partly inspired by the death of his great friend Nicholas Rubinstein (the brother of the more famous Anton). It is dedicated ' to the memory of a great artist', and was first performed privately in March, 1882.
The Trio has unusual features. In writing the piano part Chaykovsky wished to provide something that would have been worthy of so fine a pianist-for Nicholas was almost as great a virtuoso as his brother Anton - and yet at the same time keep a correct balance in the ensemble. Its form, too, is distinctive. It is divided into two parts: the first is in sonata form, while the second is a set of eleven variations on a beautiful theme that Chaykovsky with Rubinstein heard at a peasants' gathering. The last Variation worked out on fully developed lines constitutes the finale of the 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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
