: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Arthur Alexander
Schumann's Piano Sonata No. 2 in G minor occupied the composer about eight years. The second movement was written in June, 1830, the first and third in June, 1833, the fourth in its original form in 1835, then it was revised and completed in 1838, the whole sonata being published in 1839. It is often said that Schumann failed when writing in the larger and more extended musical forms. On the whole, this is probably true, but one of his most successful works is undoubtedly the G minor Piano Sonata, which is not only well written from a pianistic point of view but shows a wealth of invention and considerable imagination in the working out of the thematic material.

: A SONATA RECITAL

Margot Macgibbon (violin)
Frederick Jackson (pianoforte)
Brahms's Sonata in A is one of his most melodious and lyrical works. It was conceived while spending the summer of 1886 on Lake Thun. Brahms's friend, Widmann, wrote a little ballad on the music, describing the scenes that inspired the composer. The first verse, freely translated, runs: ' Where the Aar flows softly from the lake to the little town many beautiful trees cast their shadows. I lay deep in the long grass and slept, dreaming lovely dreams.'

Town and Country Planning
A discussion between
Sir Raymond Unwin , Thomas Sharp , R. A. H. Livett , A.R.I.B.A.
Chairman, Anthony Bertram
Planning, Anthony Bertram argues, is not an interfering fad of busy-bodies. It is the method by which we can build beautiful cities and preserve the country, which is now not only the countryman's home but also the townsman's playground. Only a strong public opinion, he says. can prevent our cities being muddles, our country a shoddy suburbia, and our traffic problems a waste of life and time and money.

The story of the tragic life and death of Maximilian of Habsburg, last Emperor of Mexico told by Count Alfred Hessenstein
Listeners have already heard four talks of personal recollections by Count Hessenstein, on gypsies, castles, and Budapest ; on Wagner and Munich ; on King Ludwig ; and on the three Emperors (William I, Frederick, and William II of Germany). Now he has compiled a programme round the tragedy of the Habsburg Archduke Maximilian , who went to Mexico as its emperor, backed by Eugenic and Napoleon III , lost his empire, was imprisoned, tried, and shot.
Count Hessenstein is a cousin of Count Augusto Salm , who was Lord Chamberlain to Maximilian's brother, Charles Ludwig , to whom the ill-fated Emperor of Mexico wrote regularly week by week. Count Hessenstein has compiled the programme from Maximilian's letters and his diary.

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.
