A fortnightly series
The violin sonatas: second of two programmes, which also includes two organ sonatas. EDUARD MELKUS (violin)
LIONEL SALTER (harpsichord) LUIGI TAGLIAVINI (organ)
There are several grounds for supposing that eight of Scarlatti's sonatas were originally conceived as violin sonatas. and Lionel Salter has edited and arranged them as such. In addition, a few other sonatas were conceived, either explicitly or impiicitly. for chamber organ, and both the organ sonatas in this programme have indications for changes of register and manual.
Violin Sonatas: c minor (Kk 73): E minor (Kk 81)
Organ Sonatas: D major (Kk 288): G major (Kk 328)
Violin Sonata: D minor (Kk 90)

by David Rudkin
with Norman Rodway as Roger Casement

In 1965 the remains of Irish patriot Roger Casement were disinterred from the limepit at Pentonville and brought to Dublin. Casement, as this play shows, was a man of many conflicting parts. Is there a parallel between his history and Ireland's? Is there a lesson to be learned from it?

Those taking part, in alphabetical order: Joan Bakewell, Sean Barrett, Kate Binchy, Michael Deacon, William Eedle, Kevin Flood, Martin Friend, Heather Gibson, David Gooderson, Sheila Grant, Michael Harbour, John Hollis, Fraser Kerr, Rolf Lefebvre, Peggy Marshall, Meryl O'keeffe, Irene Prador, David Rudkin, Henry Stamper, Eva Stuart, John Tusa, David Valla, Mary Wimbush and Joy Worth
