: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

MODERN FRENCH PIANOFORTE MUSIC
Played by Mrs. NORMAN O'NEILL
A S regards the laying out of musical ideas for the Pianoforte, Ravel is with justice reckoned one of the most imaginative and resourceful composers since Chopin.
The first of these two pieces is from the set entitled Mirrors (1905). Those who are familiar with one or other of Debussy's pieces in which bells figure (notably Cloches a travcrs les feuilles) will find it interesting to compare Ravel's treatment here of the sonorities of the little tinkling bells and the big booming ones.
Fountains, written in 1901. when Ravel was twenty-six, was the first piece in which he showed his brilliant powers in Pianoforte writing
It has for preface a few words calling up the sight of one of those sculptured, happy water-gods wo have seen smiling beneficently in the midst of an ornamental fountain.

La Valiée des Cloches (The Valley of Dells) - Ravel
Jeux d'Eau (Fountains) - Ravel

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.
