SINCLAIR LOGAN (Baritone), and WILLIAM PRIMROSE
(Violin) VIVALDI’S fame rested in his day (the early eighteenth century), chiefly on his virtuosity. Besides being a notable performer on the violin, he conducted an' Orchestra of girls at a foundling hospital in his native Venice, and also held office as a Priest of St. Mark's.
He wrote about eighty Concertos, in all of which the Violin plays a leading part. The work we are to hear, in an arrangement for
Violin and Pianoforte, is in three Movements,' respectively quick, slow, and very quick.
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.
