: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

EARLY ITALIAN VIOLONCELLO
Music Played by JULIETTE ALVIN
THE violoncellist is very much less well off than his little brother, the violinist, in the music provided by the older masters for his instrument. Compared with pianists, he is in that respect a very beggar. And so for generations, violoncellists have had to make good the deficiency as best they might by stealing from the other instruments and re-arranging music not originally meant for them. Among the old Italian masters there is a wealth of delightfully melodious music which loses nothing, and, indeed, often gains by being transferred from the violin or one of the other instruments, to the resonant violoncello, and many eminent hands have done good work in making such arrangements. Listeners are to hear, at this period throughout the week, melodious examples from Italian music of the order which has earned for itself the title of ' secondary classics.'
In the spacious and dignified age before the virtuoso made his appearance on the stage of musical life, when the task of the artist was to delight rather than to astonish his audience, Corelli held sway as the ruling master of his instrument. Alike as player and as teacher, ho exercised an influence on the whole art of violin playing which it would be difficult to over-estimate.

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.
