JOAQUIN TURINA (born 18S2) is one of the most distinguished of the present-day musicians of Spain. He and Manuel de Falla are the two Composers in whom the modern school of Spanish music, which is founded on the tunes and dances of the people, lives most intensely.
They are both Andalusians, and most of their works reflect the picturesqueness of the Southern landscapes, the warmth and colour of the national life, the thrumming rhythm of popular music born of the guitar, the tinge of the East that is still over the land once rilled by the Moors.
FRANCK'S String Quartet contains some of his most fragrant music, rich in harmony, striking, resourceful, fresh in technical construction, and full of nobility of feeling.
The Scherzo, of great delicacy and fine imagination, is played on muted Strings.

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.
