Workshop: Pierre Boulez: Portrait - Analysis - Performance


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.
In this programme the distinguished French composer talks about his life and music and conducts a performance of his Improvisation No. 2 on Mallarme.

With Halina Lukomska (soprano) and The New Music Ensemble: Elizabeth Fletcher (harp), Susan Bradshaw (celesta), Patricia Brady (vibraphone), Richard Rodney Bennett (piano), Eric Allen (bells), Gilbert Webster, Terence Emery, Jack Lees Jr., and Tristan Fry (percussion)

"It was a measure of the complete seriousness and success of this thoroughly tele-visual programme that it left one thinking in a rather fresh way of the problems of Boulez's music, of the whole crisis in music." (New Statesman)
"...illuminating and beautifully photographed." (Daily Telegraph)
"A wonderful experience and one that could be enjoyed by the musically untrained at well as by the musician." (The Guardian)

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.
