: ALFREDO CAMPOLI AND HIS SALON ORCHESTRA

In 1920 a fourteen-year-old violinist, the son of a man who was a first violin of the Orchestra Massima in Rome, gave a recital at the Wigmore Hall. Three months later he gave another public performance, and this time his birth certificate was exhibited in the vestibule. The technique and tone were so mature that it was difficult to believe the player was so young. Now in his thirties, Campoli is a brilliant exponent of both light and classical music. He studied at the Rome Conservatoire, and has given recitals of classical music all over Europe ; listeners will remember his playing of the Brahms Violin Concerto in a broadcast from Bournemouth. For a long time he led the Fred Hartley Quintet and the Serge Krish Septet ; but to radio audiences he is better known for his light music combinations, such as his Trio and the Salon Orchestra which is to be heard this morning.

Jean-Baptiste Lully was for thirty years in the service of Louis XIV, first as violinist and ballet dancer, and finally in supreme charge of the music and Court entertainments of Le Roi Soleil. His continued success is partly due to the fact that he was able to follow the varying tastes of the King and his Court. Thus when Louis, under the influence of Madame de Maintenon, began to grow more devout, Lully turned his attention to sacred music, and produced at least twenty-three motets, of which six for double choir, orchestra, and organ were published * by express Command of His Majesty '. The most famous of these is the ' Miserere' which probably dates from 1664, and of which Madame de Sevigne writes so enthusiastically in 1672.

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.
