IN the first half of the eighteenth century Leo held a foremost position in the musical world of Italy, as composer of church music and of comic operas. Many of these latter were, by all accounts, really humorous, with the music as well as the texts contributing to the merriment.: They are thus among the earliest examples in a. long line of distinguished work which reached its highest point in Verdi's Falstaff.
Loo was no less distinguished as a teacher, numbering among his pupils Piccini, who is best remembered today by his quarrel with the great Gluck. He was a strict master, but one who earned the sincere affection of his pupils, and at least one happy instance of that is recorded. Leo had dedicated one of his works to King Charles Emmanuel of Savoy, and had refused to allow other copies of the music to be made. His pupils. however, succeeded in writing it out without his knowledge, and performing it for their master's benefit.
A number of his Comic Operas are preserved in Italian libraries, and our British Museum lias several examples of his sacred works. But he left also a considerable volume of purely instrumental pieces, and as listeners will hear for themselves in this one, he had a very happy gift of fresh and joyous melody.

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.
