At The Organ of The Plaza Theatre,

: Chamber Music

ALL ELGAR'S chamber music, the Violin Sonata, the Quintet, and the Quartet, were written in a Sussex village in the year 1918 and 1919, so that there is a clear assumption that a compelling reaction from the horrors of the preceding years was lesponsible more than any other cause for their quiet autumnal beauty. They were first heard when the War had ceased.
Each is constructed much on the same plan. There are three movements, no Scherzo; and the slow movement is in each work the jewel within the setting, a movement of rare beauty. Thus in the Vio!;n Sonata, it is the Romance that lingers longest in the memory. The whole is, however, a piece of lovely writing.

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.
