ITALIAN SEVENTEENTH CENTURY SONGS and DUETS
Sung by BEATRICE BEAUFORT and JANET CHRISTOPHER
(An article on Italian Opera of the seventeenth century appears on page 42 2) FLORENCE IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY
GIULIO CACCINI was the 6rst to give importance to music for a single voice. He composed and sang recitatives at musical assemblies in the great houses of Florence, and was the first to attempt to make music dramatic, and to use it as the expression of emotion.
In 1600 with JACOPO PERI (1560) he published
Euridice. This was the beginning of modem opera. The first performance of Euridice was commissioned for the occasion of the marriage of Henri IV and Maria di Medici, and performed by Caccini's pupils.
MARCO DA GAGLIANO , (1575) was a very important musician in Florence in the early seventeenth century. He founded a music academy and became the centre of musical life there.
ALESSANDRO SCARLATTI (1659) was one of the most important figures, not only in the history of opera, but in the entire history of music. Ho was the precursor and teacher of many eighteenth-century musicians, among them Pergolesi and Durante. He had an immense influence and held positions in most of the important centres in Italy during the latter half of the century. In 1702 he was organist in Florence.

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.
