: A Sonata Recital

Sybil Eaton (violin)
Victor Hely-Hutchinson
The Violin Sonata in D minor is one of Brahms's most powerful and dramatic works. It is designed, as Sir Donald Tovey points out, ' on a symphonic scale and is obviously as full of effortless power as any conceivable quartet or sextet'. It is a sonata for two instruments in the real sense of the word, in that the music is conceived in terms of both the violin and piano, instead of in terms of a solo violin with piano accompaniment. Here we see Brahms's musical imagination in its most inspired flights, and each of the four movements is a supreme revelation of his manifold genius.


Violin: Sybil Eaton
Pianoforte: Victor Hely-Hutchinson
Unknown: Sir Donald Tovey

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.
