BBC Proms 1995: the Centenary Season


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.
Introduced by James Naughtie from the Royal Albert Hall, London.
This Centenary Season sees the first visit of an Italian symphony orchestra to the Proms. The Orchestra of the Academy of Santa Cecilia in Rome, with their 33-year-old conductor and music director Daniele Gatti, perform Respighi's Fountains of Rome, a vivid and colourful picture-postcard evocation that displays the characteristically warm and generous sound of the orchestra.
The interval film reveals the locations that inspired the music and shows the orchestra at work on their home ground. Gatti - a charismatic Milan-born maestro - is one of the fast rising stars of the concert platform and takes over as music director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra next year.
"The academy is one of Italy's oldest orchestras and this year they celebrate their centenary so it is particularly important for us to join the centenary celebrations of the Proms," Gatti says.
There's also a witty and sparkling concerto for two pianos by Poulenc.
The soloists are the acclaimed sisters, Katia and Marielle Labeque.

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.
