: Barbirolli Night

Petroc Trelawny celebrates the life and work of the much-loved conductor
John Barbirolli in a special evening of programmes live from the Bridgewater Hall. Born 100 years ago today of Italian and French parents, Giovanni Battista Barbirolli's 40-year career began in the opera house but flourished in the concert hall, first as permanent conductor of the New York Philharmonic and then -from
1943 until his death in 1970 - at the helm of the Halle Orchestra. Barbirolli was passionate about English music - particularly the works of Elgar and Vaughan Williams which feature in tonight's concert, performed by the Halle orchestra under music director Kent Nagano.
7.30 As a prelude to the evening, Michael Kennedy , Barbirolli's biographer, looks backto 1943 and the beginning of Barbirolli's years as permanent conductor of the Halle Orchestra.
7.40 Eigar Overture: Cockaigne (In London Town) Halle Orchestra/Kent Nagano
8.00 Michael Kennedy explores
Barbirolli's love of English music-in particular his association with Vaughan Williams, who dedicated his Symphony No 8to "Glorious John".
8.05 Vaughan Williams Symphony No 8 Halle Orchestra, conductor Kent Nagano
8.30 Barbirolli and the Halle
Lyndon Jenkins introduces conversation and reminiscences of Barbirolli's time with the Halle Orchestra, recorded last evening in front of a Bridgewater Hall audience. With contributions from Lady Barbirolli, Daniel Barenboim, Michael Kennedy and former members of the Halle staff and players.
8.55 Brahms Piano Concerto No 1 in D m/norDaniel Barenboim,
Halle Orchestra, conductor Kent Nagano
9.55 Barbirolli Abroad
Barbirolli was in his mid-30s when the invitation came to conduct a series of concerts with the New York Philharmonic.
It was a controversial appointment: he was the youngest conductor to achieve such recognition. Then in the sixties he ventured abroad again, touring with the Philharmonia and the BBC Symphony
Orchestra and appearing regularly with the Berlin Philharmonic.
10.20 A Rourish for Glorious John
A selection of Barbirolli's finest recordings ends the evening, including part of his celebrated recording of Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius; the Adagio from Mahler's
Symphony No 5; and some of his famous Halle lollipops. Also included are tributes from friends and colleagues.

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.
