: Performance on 3

A concert live from Studio 1 at Maida Vale
Studios in London, featuring music by two composers whose philosophical and political views greatly influenced their music. Michael Tippett (1905-98) wrote his second symphony in 1956-7. Commissioned by the BBC, it was premiered by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Adrian Boult at the Royal Festival Hall in February 1958. Alan Bush (1900-95), pianist and composer, was an extraordinary individual. Hejoined the Communist party in 1935, and his vast and neglected piano concerto was written in 1937. The last of the four movements includes a solo baritone and male voice choirwho sing about the power of music and the tyranny of oppression. It was premiered, with Bush as the soloist, at a BBC Concert in 1938. Ashley Holland (baritone). Rolf Hind

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.
