: This Week's Composer: Claudio Monteverdi

' The heart of Monteverdi's music lies in his madrigals.'
(DENIS ARNOLD )
Monteverdi's development of the form from traditional Dieces with five unaccompanied voices to works in free melodic style with strings and continuo is one of the most interesting features of his music. Each of this week's programmes includes pieces from Book Eight and contrasts them with madrigals from the other seven books, and the posthumously published ninth book.

Barney Kessel , the guitarist, talks to CHARLES fox about his life as a jazz musician. He began his professional career in 1943 at the age of 20 with the Chico Marx Orchestra , before moving to the bands of Charlie Barnet and Artie Shaw. Since then, apart from a Jazz at the Philharmonic tour as a member of the Oscar Peterson Trio, he has been freelance, and one of the busiest session men on the American West Coast. In recent years he has been giving concerts as a solo guitarist. The conversation is illustrated with some of his many records.

A recording of highlights from their Tenth Anniversary Concert given at the Royal Festival Hall on 1 May. It was, as the programme book said, a rmainly unashamedly light-hearted ' celebration including some of Flanders and Swann s Songs of Pride and Prejudice, a group of close-harmony popular songs and some merry madrigals, among them John Farmer's Fair Phyllis I saw sitting all alone. Banchieri's Contrappunto bestiale alia mente and Jannequin s La Guerre. The more serious side of their work was also represented, by de Wert's Valle che de lamenti miei and Poulenc s Four Prayers of St Francis of Assisi.

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.
