: Composer of the Week: Gluck

3: The Desertion of Vienna for Paris
Gluck expended a huge amount of energy trying to reform operatic practice in Vienna, but in the end he felt undervalued and ignored. He left Vienna for Paris in the early 1770s and established his reputation in the French capital with a newly composed French version of his Italian opera Alceste. Donald Macleod introduces excerpts from both versions, including the classic recording of Divinités du Styx by Maria Callas , and the whole of Act 3 of the French version with Jessye Norman in the title role.

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.
