THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
GIOVANNI GABRIELT , composer and organist, wits born in Vienna in 1557, and never left it till his death in 1612, though his fame as a teacher seems to have been world-wide. Heinrich Schutz and Michael Prpetorius were amongst his grateful pupils. He was a contrapuntist of extraordinary powers, and he once wrote a motet in nineteen independent parts. This Gabrieli dedicated it to a nobleman who had invited him to his wedding. CLAUDIO MONTEVERDI (1567-1643) lies in Y history, and in the development of music, midway between Palestrina and Handel. Monteverdi was a reformer-even more, a firebrand and a revolutionary, and his influence in his own times can be compared to that of Berlioz and Wagrier in the nineteenth century. With his first opera,
Orfeo, he summed up all the achievements of the past and put a full stop to that tradition: with L'lncoroiiazione di Poppea, his last opera, he inaugurated a new era. It is the first of the long line of operas leading up to our own day and is the base of our present tradition. In tfcis work he upheld the voice and submerged the orchestra, and made of opera a dramatic reality.
Monteverdi, in his role of rebel, introduced many innovations. It is to him we owe the employment of discords-not that they are discords to-day, for the now ubiquitous and invaluable dominant seventh was one of them-the extended orchestra, making possible the huge orchestras of today; the properly designed orchestral accompanient, and the dramatic use of tremolando in the strings. Indeed, we owe Monteverdi so much as an innovator that there was the danger we should forget he was a composer too. Fortunately Signor Malipiero , himself one of the most distinguished of modern Italian composers, has set himself the great task of re-editing and making available to the world the inestimable treasures of his great compatriot.
BERNARDO PASQUINI was an important
Italian musician of the latter half of the seventeenth century. His music is held to have something iu common with Handel's, and in his day he exercised some influence on German musicians. At one time he was harpsichord player in the opera house at Rome in the same orchestra with the renowned violinist, Corelli.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
