Director of Music, E. T. DAVIES
Cesar Franck 's music reflects his personal characteristics as a man with extraordinary fidelity. His kindness, idealism, mysticism, and sentimentality are all qualities that are sublimated in his music. One of his most personal and intimate works, and from a purely musical point of view possibly his most perfect, is the Violin Sonata in A, which was written in 1886 for that great Belgian violinist, Ysaye. One of its most striking characteristics is the power and inevitableness of its construction : the principal theme of each of the four well-contrasted movements derives from the opening figure heard at the beginning of the first movement. This ' cyclic' method of construction, of which Franck was so fond, is here exploited to its utmost possibilities.

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.
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

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.
