(Section E)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by H. FOSTER CLARK
JOAN COXON (soprano) RAMEAU'S FIRST really important work for the stage was Hippolyte et Aricie, the libretto of which was founded on Racine's Phedre. The Abbe Pellegrin, who adapted the text, had his doubts about the talent of a composer, who, though already fifty years old, was -scarcely known at all, and demanded from Rameau a bill for 500 livres as security against the failure of the opera. The Abb6 attended the first performance with the bill in his hand ready to present it at the conclusion of the show. So pleased was he, however, with the music that he tore up the bill immediately the curtain was down on the first act. If it had been left to the public,
Rameau's path would have been easy, but he had the professors and the performers against him. Only one of his colleagues, Campra, had the courage to defend him. ' There is enough stuff in Hippolyte and Aricie ', he said, ' for ten operas. This man will eclipse us all '. Campra was right; Rameau died, mourned by both the public and the Court, the greatest musician in France.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
