: Morning Performance

Talk of the Devil
This week lain Burnside looks at musical malevolence, sorcery and diabolical doings. An early musical association with the Devil came in the form of thetritone.
This musical interval was nicknamed the diabolus in musica (devil in music) on account of its fiendish sound. The
Renaissance composer (and murderer)
Carlo Gesualdo exploited it in his madrigals, and it has continued to be used by composers wishing to evoke evil, as illustrated by the sinister "Wolf's Glen
Scene" from Weber's Der Freischutz. Plus
Dukas's The Sorcerer's Apprentice,
Dvorak's opera Kate and the Devil and Saint-Saens's Danse Macabre.


Unknown: Carlo Gesualdo

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
