: Webern Weekend

A two-day series of Webern's complete acknowledged works - Op 1 to Op 31 - in eight programmes, with related talks and features.
Listening to
Anton Webern
After his death in 1945, Webern was hailed as the 'father of the new', his pure, precise works serving as the model for composers wishing to break with tradition.
But Webern believed he was continuing a tradition, not breaking with the past.
To launch this Webern Weekend, Michael Hall examines some of the processes at work in Webern's Variations, Op 27 for piano; and provides a trail of clues for effective listening to this least rhetorical, most concise of composers.
Musical examples and a complete performance of the Variations played by John McCabe.
1.45 Webern Concerto, Op 24; Two Songs, Op 8. Phyllis Bryn-Julson (soprano); Ensemble intercontemporain/ Pierre Boulez (R)

: Webern Weekend

Music by the Renaissance composer Heinrich Isaac , including the Propers for the Conception of the Virgin, from his works written for Constance Cathedral. Part of this cycle of works was edited by Webern in connection with his doctoral thesis, and Isaac's approach to musical structure proved influential, even after four centuries. Record

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.
