: ' DESIGN AND THE COMPOSER'

Gramophone records illustrating the history of sonata form by Basil Lam
' The Bach; and early Haydn '
Listeners need hardly be reminded that sonata form is one of the most important of all musical forms, for it is the foundation of the modern symphony, concerto, quartet, trio-in fact, almost all instrumental music from Bach's time to our own. The aim of this series of twelve gramophone recitals is to trace the development of sonata form from its early beginnings up to modern times. These recitals, however, are intended to be not a series of lectures with musical examples, but rather a set of delightful musical programmes linked together by short and significant commentaries.
This afternoon's recital will cover the period of transition between Bach and Haydn.

: CHAMBER MUSIC

The Griller String Quartet :
Sidney Griller (violin)
Jack O'Brien (violin)
Philip Burton (viola)
Colin Hampton (violoncello)
Borodin's Second Quartet in D was written four or five years after its predecessor and published only after the composer's death in 1887. It is a delightful thing, as full of limpid melody — ' linked sweetness long drawn out '-as anything of Schubert's. The third movement, a languorous nocturne, is often played as a separate piece. The finale is definitely stamped as Borodin's by the opening theme on the lower strings ; it is marked by the same peculiar little melodic twist as the opening theme of his B minor Symphony.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
