: Composer of the Week: Glazunov

Music publisher and entrepreneur
Mitrofan Belyayev was a major influence in Glazunov's life, and his death dealt Glazunov a cruel blow. However, the composer weathered this setback to maintain his position as a leading force in Russian music. Today Donald Macleod introduces works written by Glazunov at the height of his powers, including the symphony which his pupil Shostakovich regarded as Glazunov's best- his eighth - and his violin concerto, which has proved to be his most popularwork.

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.
