Composer of the Week: Waxman

Synopsis

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.
5/5. Impressions and Epitaphs. Waxman's early death from cancer in 1967 robbed the world of a composer at the peak of his powers. In this week's final programme, Donald Macleod and studio guest Rachel Segal contrast two colourful showpieces for orchestra with the sombre late song-cycle Song of Terezin, Waxman's setting of poems by children interned in a Nazi concentration camp. La Marquesa de Santa Cruz (Goyana)
Cristina Ortiz (piano), Orquestra Simfonica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya, conductor Lawrence Foster The Ride to Dubno (Taras Bulba) MGM Studio Orchestra, conducted by the composer The Song of Terezin Delia Jones (mezzo),
Berlin SO/Lawrence Foster Repeated at 8.45pm

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
