3.00 Music in Europe
The fifties was a decade of bewildering musical variety across Europe: young composers tried to rebuild a musical language from scratch in the vacuum left by the Second World War, experimenting with quasi-scientific rigour on every parameter of musical experience. At the same time, older and more traditional composers continued to follow their more familiar course.
Ivan Hewett picks his way through the contradictions, pitting the old against the new, and introduces music from France by Poulenc and Boulez, from Germany by Hindemith and Henze and from Britain by Britten and Maxwell Davies.
Producer Chris Marshall

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.
