: Cyril Scott

90th Birthday Concert
Claude Debussy described Cyril Scott as ' one of the rarest artists of the present generation.' He studied in Germany with Roger Quilter and Percy Grainger , and was once regarded as the last word in modernity. In fact, he wrote in a harmonic idiom years ahead of his time; other composers from 1920 onwards gradually caught up with him. Today's programme is the first of two to be given this weekend to mark the composer's birthday Records of CYRIL scott playing some of his own piano music li.15* String Quartet No 2

: The Rape of Lucretia

An opera in two acts
Libretto by RONALD DUNCAN after the play
Le Viol de Lucr&ce by ANDRE OBEY
Music by BENJAMIN BRITTEN The English Opera Group production from
Sadler's Wells Theatre, London
Britten's second published opera, first produced at Glyndebourne in 1946 with the famous contralto Kathleen Ferrier in the leading role, was as important a landmark in English operatic history as Peter Grimes : for it inaugurated the English Opera Group, and with it the still nourishing tradition of chamber opera, a genre only touched upon before by Vaughan Williams and Holst.
The story concerns the rape by Tarquinius, Prince of Rome. of the wife of his general. Collatinus, which provoked a rebellion and the expulsion of the Roman kings. In Ronald Duncan 's libretto the drama is given a new dimension by the presence of two singers, the Male and Female Chorus, who comment on the action from a Christian point of view.

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.
