conducts his own music PETER PEARS ( tenor) LONDON SINFONIETTA conducted by WITOLD LUTOSLAWSKI Part 1
Funeral Music; Paroles Tissées
10.45' Peter Dickinson talks about Lutoslawski, and in particular about his new work, Preludes and Fugue,
11.0* Witold Lutoslawski: part 2 Preludes and Fugue
(Part of a public concert recorded in the Queen Elizabeth Hall , London, on 20 January) Here with the composer on the rostrum, we were given a bird's-eye view of Lutoslawskt s development: from a lonely post-war figure having to catch up with what had been happening artistically in the rest of Europe, and at first under the spell of Bartok and others, to one of the most idiosyncratic exponents of aleatory composttion, of which Preludes and Fugue teas a superb example. (Meirion Bowen : the GUARDIAN)

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
