STUDIES AND OTHER PIANOFORTE PIECES

Nuages (Clouds) (Nocturne. Pianoforte Arrangement by Gustave Samazeuihl )
Etude pour les sixtes (Study in sixths)
Etude pour les notes repetees (Study in repeated
Notes)
AMONG Debussy's best.known music for orchestra is a set of three Nocturnes, of which Nuages is the first. Like nearly all his music, it conveys a vivid, although dreamy, impression of the image which inspired it, and as one listens, it is easy to imagine the ' clouds ' of its title, as they sail across the sky. In the orchestral version it begins with a long rolling theme on clarinets and bassoons, which persists throughout the greater part of the piece. Toward the end it makes way for another section in which the movement almost ceases, and, at the close; it dies away in the softest tone.
So much of Debussy's pianoforte music has been arranged for orchestral and other instrumental performance that there is a special interest in hearing one of his orchestral pieces in an arrangement for pianoforte.

A Sea Change, a burlesque opera in what was in those days the popular style, was first published in America in the 'nineties, but until last November, when the B.B.C. performed it, it had never been heard in this country. It proved to be so popular that a repetition of it was almost immediately decided upon.

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.
