Saint-Sauns was one of the most eminent French composers of his period, which was a long one for he was born in 1835 (two years after Brahms) and died in 1921. His style as a composer combined the romanticism of Liszt with the purity and polished workmanship of French classicism. Romain Rolland has summed up Saint-Saens in the following words : ' He is tormented by no passions, and nothing perturbs the lucidity of his mind. At times, his music seems to carry us back to Mendelssohn, to Spontini, to the school of Gluck. He brings into the midst of our present restlessness something of the sweetness and clarity of past periods, something that seems like fragments of a vanished world
Saint-Saens was an admirer and follower of Liszt, whom he met while a student at the Paris Conservatoire.
His Symphony No. 3 in C minor, which was first performed in 1886, is dedicated to the memory of Liszt. It is a work that shows Saint-Saens's great command over orchestral resources, and is written in the grand style and manner that are in keeping with the spirit of Liszt. The music contains much variety of mood and some compelling climaxes.

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.
