: Organ Recital

By WALTER VALE
From ALL SAINTS', MARGARET STREET .
IN the early eighteenth century Vivaldi was a leading figure in the Italian world of music, and both as violinist and composer, left his mark on a good many generations to come.
For many years ho was in charge of the music at one of the four great schools which gave Venice of that day a pre-eminent place in Europe.
The pupils were all religious novices, and the choir and orchestra in each was composed entirely of girls. Dr. Burney, in one of his letters from Venice, writes of such a school as 'nightingales who poured balm into my wounded ears.' Another historian of the time is even more enthusiastic. He says, the girls sing like angels: they play the violin, the flute, the organ, the hautboy, the violoncello, the bassoon, in short, no instrument is large enough to frighten them.... Nothing can be more delightful than to see a young and pretty novice dressed in white with a bunch of pomegranate flowers behind her ear, conducting an orchestra and beating the time
Even if none of Vivaldi's music had remained, we should have counted it important tor the interest with which the great Bach studied it :
Bach had no time to spare for anything but tne best in music. He transcribed no fewer than sixteen of Vivaldi's violin concertos for clavier, and four for organ; but the greatest evidence of his enthusiasm for the Italian master is his gigantic arrangement of a concerto for four violins, for four harpsichords (or pianofortes), and string orchestra.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
