Couporin, Rameau, and Scarlatti, who
.flourished during the close of the seventeenth century and the first half of the eighteenth, were three great contemporary composers of harpsichord music. While Couperin and Rameau upheld the artistic traditions of France, Scarlatti was doing likewise in Italy, where he was born in 1683. Scarlatti has well been called the founder of modern pianoforte technique, and as a harpsichord virtuoso he secured a great reputation. In 1709, when Handel visited Rome. Scarlatti was selected to compete against the Saxon giant in a trial of virtuosity as an organist and harpsichordist. On the organ he proved Handel's inferior, but on the harpsichord the honours were more or less even. A large proportion of the short pieces Scarlatti wrote for the harpsichord he called sonatas,' but it must be pointed out that they bear little or no resemblance in form to the sonatas of Haydn and Mozart. At that period ' sonata ' was the vague general term for a piece of music to be played on instruments, while ' cantata ' meant a piece of music to be sung. These charming little ' sonatas ' of Scarlatti sound as fresh today as ever, and their tunefulness, delicacy of workmanship, and brilliancy of style combine to make them irresistibly attractive.

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.
