: BEETHOVEN

Serenade, Op. 8
1 Marcia. 2 Adagio. 3 Minuetto. 4 Adagio-Scherzo. 5 Allegretto alia polacca. 6 Andante quasi allegretto. 7 Marcia played by The Philharmonic String Trio:
David Martin (violin)
Frederick Riddle (viola)
James Whitehead (violoncello)
The first period of the three into which it is usual to divide Beethoven's career as a composer includes nineteen pieces of chamber music, roughly one-third of the total output of those years. They range from the Septet to a Sonata for piano and mandolin, and include four string trios, of which this Serenade has always been the most popular.
It exploits the three instruments with a masterly knowledge of their possibilities. The fourth movement is an instance of Beethoven's experiments in form, combining as it does slow movement and scherzo. There is a sharp contrast in manner between the middle Allegro molto and the Adagio that is interchanged with it.

: THE BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by Maurice Johnstone
Hamish MacCunn , the richly-gifted Scotsman whose death in 1916 was so heavy a loss to British music, was just twenty when this stirring piece appeared in 1888. Instinct with all that is most picturesque and vivid in the Scottish national idiom, it was an immediate success and has ever since been popular.
The tale on which it is based is common to the folk lore of many lands. In Scott's version, which was MacCunn's inspiration, the Demon
Lover carries off a fair lady from her husband and two bonnie babes, on his ship whose ' masts were of the beaten gold '. But very soon she spies his cloven foot, and watches with horror as he grows to monstrous height. The music presents the whole impression of the ballad, rather than illustrates the course of the grim tale.

: MENDELSSOHN

Sonata in D. Op. 58 for violoncello and pianoforte
1 Allegro assai vivace. 2 Allegretto scherzando. 3 Adagio (Nachtstiick). 4 Molto allegro e vivace played by Antonia Butler (violoncello)
Kathleen Markwell (pianoforte)
Amonia Butler trained at the Leipzig Conservatoire which was founded by Mendelssohn, and played at her first students' concert when fourteen years of age. Leaving Leipzig, she studied for three years in Paris at the Ecole Normale de Musique, and gave her first public concert in Paris in 1928, her London debut following at the Wigmore Hall a year later. As a great virtuoso on the cello she owes much to Julius Klengel , chief professor of the Leipzig Conservatoire, and one of the greatest teachers of the cello.
Kathleen Markwell studied the pianoforte and singing at the Royal College of Music. She is a soloist of distinction who has also done a great deal of accompanying of well-known instrumentalists and singers. She has been giving recitals with Antonia Butler for some years.

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.
