: A RECITAL

Montague Brearley (violin) Esther Fisher (pianoforte)
' The Father of Violin Playing’
Arcangelo Corelli - who, living between 1653 and 1713, was of the musical generation before Handel-is considered [he father of violin playing as we know it today. He was one of the greatest violinists of his time and instituted many reforms in both playing the violin and composing for it. He was, for instance, one of the founders of sonata form, of which the present Sonata in F is an interesting specimen.
Schumann's Sonatas
Schumann's two sonatas for violin and piano, Op. 105 and Op. 121, were both composed in 1851 in Düsseldorf. The first was published in 1852 and the second in 1853. Some critics claim that these sonatas reflect the unhappy period of Schumann's life at that time. Be that as it may, they are certainly both very dramatic in character and, if not exactly models of musical construction, are full of fine music.

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.
