: The Idea Was Good

A Study of Britten's 'War Requiem'
The first performance was not the quality one would have wished for due to the curious acoustic of Coventry Cathedral, but I remember the composer saying afterwards the idea was good. (MEREDITH DAVIES) Benjamin Britten 's War Requiem was hailed as a masterpiece after its first performance in 1962. Many performances followed but adverse critical reaction soon set in. Recently the work has regained its status.
Michael Kennedy considers the reasons for the work's chequered history with Sir Peter Pears , Peter Evans Galina Vishnevskaya
Heather Harper , Robert Tear Donald Mitchell Michael Berkeley Simon Rattle and Meredith Davies.
Producer JOHN BOUNDY (R)
(Britten's War Requiem, direct from the Royal Albert Hall , next Sunday at
7.30pm)

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.
