THE music of Cimarosa (1759-1801), one of the most famous of Italian operatic composers, was very well known abroad in his day, though he is little more than a name to us now. In 1787 he was appointed Chamber Composer to the Empress of Russia, and later became Court Musician to Leopold III of Austria. The Secret Marriage is his best-remembered composition.
THE story by Victor Hugo on which the play Le Roi s'amuse is founded is most familiar to us in the Operatic form of Verdi's Rigoletto, composed thirty years before Delibes' incidental music to the play. Though the story is one of passion and crime, the Suite wo are to hear has the grace and elegance we associate with the composer. In the complete Suite there are seven pieces, entitled (1) Gaillarde, (2) Pavane, (3) Scene de Boquct, (4) Lesguercarde, (5) Madrigal, (6) Passepied, and (7) Finale.

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.
