: Plainsong and the Rise of European Music

Taverner
Twenty-fourth in a series of 28 programmes, devised and introduced bv Basil Lam.
The Muse of History is seldom in a hurry to celebrate past worthies, and often averts her gaze entirely from those inspired by her sisters However, interest in John Taverner has for too long been focused on unsupported and misleading legends about his life. The actual performance of his music supports the view that he is one of the major figures of the Renaissance.

: * Freedom and Heredity

The inheritance of intelligence is a matter of continuing controversy. Mary Midgley , Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, asks: is any belief in inherited tendencies inseparable from Fascism and Racism, and all talk of innateness offensive to human dignity and incompatible with freedom and equality?

: The Trio-Sonata

' The rise of all instrumental music in Italy, and particularly the rise of violin music, was closelv associated with the rise of the virtuoso performer ... As the violin-playing schools developed their own individual characteristics, and as more and more Italians travelled abroad and returned with news of new developments. for example in German virtuosity, so the requirements of the trio composers were adapted to find openings for this soloistic display.'
This increased stress on virtuoso playing is one of the main themes in the third of Christopher Hogwood 's programmes, which traces the continuing development of the Trio-Sonata in mid-17th-century Italy. Composers represented in the programme are Giovanni Legrenzi. Maurizio Cazzatti. Marco Uccellini , Giovanni Maria Bononclni , Giovanni Battista Vitali , Giovanni Battista Buonamente and Giovanni Battista Mazzaferrata.

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.
