Trio-Sonata No. 5, in C major
Concerto No. 2, in A minor after
Vivaldi (S.593) played on a pedal harpsichord by Stanislav Heller
In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. German organists used to practise at home on clavichords and harpsichords fitted with pedal-boards: in our mechanised age we can easily forget that to practise on the organ in those days man-power was needed at the bellows. The pedal-harpsichord was built as a separate instrument with its own strings, the ordinary harpsichord standing over or upon it. Bach had several pcdalharpsichords although it is unlikely that he ever wrote any music specifically for them. However, such things as the organ trio-sonatas surely belong to the kind of non-liturgical repertoire that would have been used for pnvate performance at home.
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

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
