WE remember the name Litolff as that printed on one of the first comprehensive and cheap editions of classical music. It was started by the son of the Litolff whose Overture we are to hear, and who, after leading a roving life for some years, settled in Brunswick, and began music publishing.
The elder Litolff was renowned in his day as a pianist. His rank as a composer is not so high, though his Concert Overtures (of which Robespierre is the best known) have a good deal of excellent melodrama in them.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
