: A Pianoforte Recital

By LILIAS MACKINNON
FERUCCIO BUSONI 'S contributions to the pianoforte repertory are so important as probably to outlive his reputation as a great pianist. Not, indeed, his original compositions. but works of others that he edited. The slogan circulated by a publisher to the effect that ' Bach today means Bach-Busoni ' is truer than many another catch-phraso. Busoni rendered inestimable service to all students of piano'. forte music by his erudite editing and interpretative guidance,
SERGE PROKOFIEV is still young-only
40-to have had the success he undoubtedly has. Ten years ago he wrote an opera, The Love of the Three Oranges, a grotesque fairy tale set to equally grotesque inusic. It had great success, as did also Chout. a ballet written for Diaghilev's Russian Ballet.
TGOR STRAVINSKY started out as a rebel, but revolt is for the young, and Stravinsky is now nearly fifty. His reputation is based on-his earher works. Petrushka, that delightful ballet which' was the gem of many Russian Ballet seasons, was his first success in 1912, and there are those who assort that The Rite of Spring, in 1913, was his last, and that the tide of modernism has raced past him and left him stranded. But Stravinsky remains unmoved.

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.
