: THE LEEDS UNIVERSITYMIDDAY CONCERT

from the University, Leeds
A recital by Margaret Maddison (pianoforte) and Maud Heaton (contralto)
Beethoven's Thirty-two Variations were written in 1806 and therefore represent the composer in full command of his creative gifts. The key scheme of these Variations is interesting : Variations 1-12 are in C minor, 13-17 in C major, and 18-32 in C minor.
F. Bonavia , in an article in the RADIO Times, said that in these Variations Beethoven ' recalls Bach on account of the material and spiritual unity of a work that resembles a chaconne in every particular. There is no change of rhythm and the only Change in tonality is given by the passage from minor into major

V
Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1562-1621) was one of the greatest Dutch organists of the early seventeenth century. He left a great number of compositions which were some years ago collected and published in a complete edition. But it is as a teacher that he is chiefly famous. At one time all the leading organists in Germany had been his pupils, and so widespread was his influence and so sound were his methods that even Bach, born over a hundred years later, could be said to have been indirectly a pupil of Sweelinck.

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.

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.
