: Composer

of the Week: Lutoslawski
4: Stylistic maturity: 1970-79
From the political unrest of the late 1960s to Solidarnosc in 1980, Lutoslawski's career continued to develop outside Poland with engagements all over the world conducting and recording his works. Donald Macleod looks at the composer's works of this period, in which he continued to refine his musical language, often finding inspiration in the playing of particular performers - the cellist
Mstislav Rostropovich and the baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau among them.

: Opera on 3: La Cenerentola

In the elegant art-deco production by Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser of Rossini's Cinderella, live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the sisters Clorinda and Thisbe are unkind rather than ugly, their father Don Magnifico is a touch too keen on his wine, and the suave Alidoro, tutortothe Prince Don Ramiro , is more a subtle manipulator than fairy godmother. But Angelina (Cinderella) still has to escape the housework to reach the ball. With confusion provided by Don Ramiro 's valet, Dandini, who swaps roles with his master in the cause of finding true love, the opera drives with dazzling musical display to its happy ending. Presented by Christopher Cook.
Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, conductor Evelino Pido
Act 1
9.05 Twenty Minutes
Piers Burton-Page looks at the enduring fascination of the Cinderella story and the way it has been interpreted by composers.
9.25 Act 2

Cinderella gets the full Italian operatic treatment in Rossini's version of the classic rags-to-riches fairy-tale romance
Opera on 3
7.25pm R3
Rossini's La Cenerentola is not his most popular work but it is a marvellously engaging opera that tells a touching story. Pushed for subject matter for this rush commission, the composer turned to Charles Perrault's French version of the Cinderella story-as the creators of the British panto favourite and Walt Disney were to do later. Yet for all that, it slightly twists the familiar tale, with the callous Don Magnifico as Cinderella's stepfather and the Prince's servant Dandini standing in for a fairy godmother. But it's the depiction of the lovers that pushes this opera beyond light comedy and gives it some power. La Cenerentola/Angelina develops from a shy, young girl into a heroic figure, while the prince, Don Ramiro. ups the intensity of their relationship with his show-stopping aria in the second act.

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.
