Marsalis on Music


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.
Trumpet virtuoso and jazz musician Wynton Marsalis plays and discusses music with an audience of young people in the first of four programmes for Easter, recorded at Tanglewood in Massachusetts, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Listening for Clues. Using down-to-earth illustrations of musical structures, Marsalis explains the classical sonata form and the chorus form used in jazz music, comparing
Prokofiev's Classical Symphony with the 32-bar structure of Duke
Ellington's Cottontail. Marsalis's own 17-piece jazz band join forces with an orchestra of young players conducted by BSO musical director Seiji Ozawa.

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.
