ONE authority lays it down fearlessly that
' Porpora was the greatest singing-master that ever lived. No singers, before or since, have sung like his pupils.' All that we know now of his method—apart from the singing exercises he loft-is the highly improbable story of how he trained the famous Caffarelli, keeping him for five years to one page of vocal gymnastics and then bidding him go, with the valediction ' You are the greatest singer in Europe.' He certainly enjoyed a great renown as a teacher, and held many important posts in the world of music, not only in -his native Italy, but throughout Europe. A contemporary of Handel's, he spent two or three years of his erratic career, in London, directing an operatic enterprise in opposition to Handel's, in which he had the backing of a good part of influential London. None of his own
, operas, however, have survived, although ho is supposed to have composed no fewer than thirty-three, as well as numerous oratorios, masses, and smaller vocal and instrumental pieces. It is in some of these last that his best qualities are displayed, and this melodious concerto is a good example of his style.

Overture, Henry IV G. P. B. Martini (1741-1816)
THE composer of this overture was not the Martini who is affectionately known to players of stringed instruments as ' Padre ' (father) Martini, the Franciscan who was in his own day one of the foremost figures in European music. The real name of this Martini was Sehwartzendorf, and it was when he had run away from home to seek his fortunes in France that he adopted the name by which he has ever since been known. That was about 1760, before Germany had assumed the leadership of the world's music. It paid better in those days to bo an Italian, and Martini was a name of good musical repute, though to his contemporaries
Schwartzendorf was always Martini il Tedosco (the German). He composed in many different forms-a good deal of military music, symphonies, operas and small theatre pieces, as well as chamber music, Masses, Requiems and Psalms. Most of these are long ago forgotten, but there is still in existence a Cantata which he wrote for the marriage of Napoleon and Marie Louise. As listeners know from the beautiful song ' Plaisir d'Amour,' which everyone sings, he had a real gift of charming 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.
