Composer of the Week: Vivaldi


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.
Vivaldi's reputation was made and sealed at the Ospedale della Pieta, a Venice orphanage where he had opportunities to demonstrate his skills as composer and director of music.
He quickly turned the house orchestra into a fine performing group, which in turn was able to give first performances of his compositions, which he was producing in a steady stream. Donald Macleod tells the story of this symbiotic relationship. Violin Concerto in G, RV301

Composer of the Week: Vivaldi

BBC Radio 3, 1 July 2003 9.00

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.
