Later she entered the Royal Academy to study pianoforte under the late Carlo Albanesi and Edgar Carr , harmony under Paul Corder , and accompaniment under Welton Hickin. She gained silver and bronze medals, together with a certificate of merit, and left with the degree of L.R.A.M. Frequently she has served as accompanist to many well-known singers, and has conducted the St. David's Singers, a well-known London-Welsh combination, who broadcast last Sunday in the Welsh programme.

by Olga Jones (violin) and Hywel Hughes (pianoforte)
In the summer of 1801, Beethoven, living happily in the country, as he loved to do, was able to complete seven or eight works, The Mount of Olives, a string quartet, several pianoforte sonatas, and two for violin and pianoforte, of which this in F (his Op. 24) was one. It is often called the ' Spring' sonata, because of its grace and serenity.
It has four contrasted movements, the first bubbling with happiness, the second a gracious little meditation, the third a flashing tiny thing — just a twinkling bit of gaiety, and the last a robust rondo, full of good humour and containing some neat syncopation.

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.
