: Hindemith: Piano Sonata No.1

played by Mewton-Wood
(BBC recording)
Sixth of a series of programmes of sonatas by Hindemith
(Piano Sonata No. 2: tomorrow)
Hindemith's three piano sonatas, which continue this series, were written in 1936. The first was inspired by a poem of Hölderlin, "Der Main", in which the poet declared that however far he might wander from his homeland he would never forget the river Main, by whose banks he had spent so many happy hours. It is perhaps not without significance that Hindemith, himself a native of Frankfurt-am-Main, was obliged to leave Germany not long after writing this sonata. The sonata has five movements; the first and fourth are fairly short, forming preludes to the longer movements that follow (Deryck Cooke)


Composer: Paul Hindemith
Pianist: Mewton-Wood

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.
