(First Performance in England)
Albert Roussel, born at Tourcoing in 1869, was educated at Tourcoing Naval College. In 1894 Roussel left the Navy and decided to devote himself to music. He went to Paris and studied under Gigout, and two years later became one of Vincent d'lndy's first pupils at the newly formed Schola Cantorum where he was appointed a professor in 1902, and in 1904 he wrote his first symphony, ' Le Poeme de la foret '.
During the war Roussel served with the Red Cross on the Marne, and then with the motor transport at Verdun and on the Somme. In 1918 he went to live quietly in Brittany where he wrote an opera, Padmavati, which was produced at the Paris Opera in 1923. Since that time a number of important works have come from his pen, including three more symphonies.
' As a composer', says Grove,
' Roussel possesses almost every quality but that of spontaneous invention: his work is fastidious and distinctive, full of colour, poetry, and decorative refinement, but seldom inspired in a purely musical sense. He conjures up images which appeal by their delicacy and individuality to the hearer's aesthetic perception rather than to his ear. Roussel is an artist first and a musician afterwards.
Roussel's later works, however, show a leaning towards the new developments of neo-classicism, particularly of the work of Stravinsky and Prokofiev, whose influence is to some extent discernible in his Symphony No. 3, in G minor. But, unlike most of the adherents of neo-classicism Roussel does not scorn lyrical utterance.

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
