: Composer of the Week: Charles Koechlin

1: Le Voyage Chimérique (The Imaginary Journey)
Only a small fraction of Koechlin's huge and wide-ranging output is known at all, let alone in Britain, and it is notoriously hard to pigeonhole him. But he was admired by just about every other French composer, from Debussy and Ravel to
Messiaen. This week's programmes set out on a voyage of discovery. including a daily world premiere from the set of 89 piano pieces called The Portrait of Daisy Hamilton and a clutch of first UK performances and broadcasts. Today, a whistle-stop tour through the bewildering variety of Koechlin's inspirations (everything from Bach to films and film stars), the first UK performance of the Hymne au Soleil, and the earliest work in his cycle of five after
Kipling's Jungle Book. Presented by Jonathan Swain , with contributions from Koechlin expert Robert Oriedge. Producer David Gallagher

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.
