Simon Rattle - Home and Away


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Conductor Simon Rattle 's name is synonymous with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, but over the years he has worked with many other orchestras, in this country and abroad. Michael Birkett presents an eight-part series looking at some of these collaborations.
2: Rotterdam Philharmonic
Rattle first conducted this orchestra in 1978 and immediately took to what he describes as their "wild and cosmopolitan" qualities. For a time he was their principal guest conductor, and he still performs with them regularly. Michael Birkett talks to the conductor about the orchestra - and vice versa. Including excerpts from a 1981 concert featuring Haydn's
Symphony No 22 in E flat (Philosopher), Wieniawski's Violin Concerto No 2 in D minor with Shlomo Mintz and Enescu's Romanian Rhapsody, and a 1982 performance of Schoenberg's arrangement of Brahms's Piano Quartet No 1.

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.
