: Osud

(fate)
Opera in a prologue, two acts and an epilogue
Libretto by FEDORA BARTOSOVA
English version by JEAN EISLER Music by Janacek
(first broadcast performance in this country)
Apart from two early and unconvincing experiments, Osud is the only opera of Janacek's that remains unknown to the musical world at large Written in 1904-1906, soon after Jenufa, it was never performed in the composers lifetime. The story bears the imprint of a personal experience. It concerns Zhivny, a struggling composer, and his love affair with the society beautv Mila, which has been thwarted by an ambitious mother Many years later at a spa the lovers decide to elope; but their triumph turns the mother insane so that she causes her own and her daughters death. All this Zhivny recounts to students who are rehearsing his opera. reliving the experience through music of great vividness and intensity.

: Humour in Music

Music can often make us laugh in the same way that jokes can. The range of ' musical jokes' is very wide - from the imitation of birds and animals or the setting of funny words, to the subtle and more inherently musical wit that characterises so much of Haydn's work.
RICHARD RASTALL , Lecturer in Music at the University of Leeds, has chosen his examples from all periods of the past 500 years of Western music.

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.

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.
