: A Light Orchestral Programme

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS '
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.

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.
