: Behind the Masque

Roderick Swanston asks six performers of early music to reveal the personal element in their music making.
3: The Kuijken brothers were born in a small Belgian village without a radio and started playing on homemade medieval fiddles. Unlike many other eanymusic pioneers, they have stuck to their Baroque and Classical roots. Barthold believes in having the right flute for every job that he does; Sigiswald rejects the idea that he conducts La Petite Bande - he leads from the violin; Wieland dismisses conductors altogether and leads just as much from the cello or gamba. Including influential recordings by Alfred Deller , August Wenzinger , I Musici and Gustav Leonhardt. The
Kuijken brothers themselves play excerpts from chamber music works by Couperln, Bach, Mirthel,
Boccherini, Haydn and Mozart. And La Petite Bande is heard in the Andante movement of Haydn's
Symphony No 94 (Surprise). Discs

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
