: THE B.B.C.

(Section C)
Conducted by H. FOSTER CLARK
Domenico Cimarosa was one of the most important operatic composers of his day, and since the only one of his operas that is still performed is //
Matrimonio Segreto (The Secret Marriage), it is the opinion of many scholars that it is time a reviving interest was taken in a number of his other works. Diaghilev, the late impresario of the Russian Ballet, made his contribution to the suggestion some years ago with the ballet Le astuzie femirtili, the music of which was drawn from the compositions of Cimarosa. The present work, La Cimarosiana , an arrangement of certain symphonic fragments of Cimarosa, is without doubt the outcome of a labour of love by the eminent Italian composer Malipiero.
This suite is taken from the music to the opera which was so successfully produced for the first time in England at Covent Garden Theatre only a few weeks ago. Listeners will remember the broadcasts, and these excerpts will recall a good deal of the fun and spirit with which the opera is plentifully spiced.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
