: Composer of the Week:Emmanuel Chabrier

(1841-94). This week Donald Macleod looks at the I ife and work of the French composer Emmanuel Chabrier , who spent most of his adult life as a civil servant at the Ministry of the Interior. Chabrierwas a spectacular pianist, prone to assaulting the instrument (which often came off worst), and a friend and confidant of Parisian artists. He was at his best in music which celebrates life and its absurdities and he was loved and admired by many of his contemporaries.

BBC Symphony Orchestra
A concert given last month in Italy at the Auditoria della Fierra as part of the Rimini Festival. The theme of the festival was ballet music and offered a rare opportunity to hear Prokofiev's second ballet The Tale of the Buffoon, or Chout. This work opened in Paris in May 1921 in a lavish production and was the novelty of the season, though London critics were shocked.

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.
