: THE BBC WEST OF ENGLAND SINGERS

Conductor, Joseph Jenkins
(From West of England)

Contributors

Conductor: Joseph Jenkins

: A Sonata Recital

William Pleeth (violoncello)
Margaret Good (pianoforte) The problem of satisfactorily combining cello with piano is not easy. The cello is less flexible than the violin, less strong and brilliant in rapid passages ; an elaborate piano Part easily drowns the stringed instrument. It can hardly be claimed that Mendelssohn handled these points as skilfully as Beethoven, but his second Cello Sonata in D major (composed 1842-3) is well written and one of the most attractive of his chamber works.
The delightful second movement, with its delicate pizzicato passages, reminds one of the composer's magic youth when his inward ear so often caught such echoes of fairyland. And the slow movement, a sort of choral fantasia, can hold its own in comparison with similar movements in the finely built organ sonatas.

Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5, in A (K.219), is one of five concertos he wrote in 1775-no doubt for his own use. Each, like the older Vivaldi type of violin concerto, consists of three movements, but in almost every other respect Mozart advanced far beyond his Italian, French, and Austrian predecessors in this field. This is particularly noticeable in the first movements. The opening tuttis with their quite symphonic statements of material, for instance, sounded quite a new note. Mozart's last three, and greatest three, symphonies were all written in three summer months of 1788 ; the E flat is dated June 26, the G minor, July 25, the C major, August 10. Mozart's finances were at their lowest ebb and this trio of masterpieces was written for a money-raising series of subscription concerts projected for June but postponed and apparently never given. It is characteristic that the E flat Symphony, overflowing with the joy of life, was composed at a time when (as we know from his letters of those weeks) Mozart was in the depths of despair.
The reciprocal influence on each other of Haydn and Mozart is well known. Even in this completely Mozartian masterpiece the attentive listener will notice affinities with the older master.
Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, [Address Removed] Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, [Address Removed] and the usual Agents. Prices: 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved), promenade (payment at doors only) 2s.

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.
