: Music for Two Pianos

Played by Joan Trimble and Valerie Trimble
Sonata...Arnold Cooke
(BBC recording)
Arnold Cooke's Sonata (1937) is dedicated to Adolph Hallis and Franz Reizenstein.
The first movement begins Andante and leads to a vigorous Allegro; the second movement, Larghetto, has a graceful middle section in nine-eight time; the greater part of the finale, Molto vivace, is in the style of a Tarantella.
The Sonata by Stravinsky, written in 1943-44, has a smooth-flowing opening movement (Moderato), followed by a Theme (Largo), with four Variations, leading to a short Allegretto for finale.

Incidental music composed and conducted by John Hotchkis
'Tis pity indeed that John Ford 's most celebrated and most powerful play should be so handicapped by its unnecessarily ugly and completely ridiculous title. Completely ridiculous because it is a completely false description of Annabella, who is not deliberately and certa n!y not professionally immoral. She and her brother Giovanni are 'rapid falcons in a snare,' an ill-starred boy and girl caught in one of nature's most insidious traps When they are not blinded by rheir passion they see the nature of rheir sin with hideous clearness. They are pitiful in their remorse, and their end is high tragedy. Indeed, the whole play is cast in a mould of high tragedy.
S. W.

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.
