: Promenade Concert

Part
Cantata: Novae de Infinito laudes....Hons Werner Henze
Conducted by the Composer

The London Philharmonic Society commissioned from Henze a large-scale cantata: for text the composer turned to the sixteenth-century Italian philosopher Giordano Bruno, whose main works were written and published in Elizabethan England. Bruno. once a Dominican priest, had left the Church to spend a brilliant but restless career at the courts and universities of northern Europe when his heretical beliefs made Italy dangerous for him. He returned to Italy in 1593, and was arrested by the Inquisition. He refused to recant and he went to the stake in 1600. The texts that Henze has set spring from reflections about mutability - the succession of day and night, of the seasons, of the years, of long centuries during which continents may change their shape and countries their climates -perpetual change, yet all of it governed by unchanging laws. This is an idea apt for musical treatment. lending itself to a variety of picturesque and incidental detail. all governed by relationship to the underlying form.
The Novae Laudes is an eloquent and visionary piece, romantically conceived and intricately crafted It was first heard in Venice in 1963. ANDREW PORTER

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.
