Jules Massenet (1842-1912) was a distinguished French composer who exercised considerable influence during his dav. In addition to a number of operas, which became very popular in France, he wrote a fair quantity of orchestral music, particularly light orchestral suites such as the 'Picturesque Scenes'. The most outstanding characteristics of Massenet's music are the grace and charm of his melodic invention and the clarity and effectiveness of his orchestration.
The Overture Phedre was written for Racine's tragedy in the production of 1900.

: THE MANCHESTER TUESDAY MIDDAY SOCIETY'S CONCERT

from the Houldsworth Hall ,
Manchester
Maurice Hardy (violoncello)
Leonard Isaacs (pianoforte)
Faure had a great power of lyrical expression. His music abounds with beautiful and finely drawn melodies. A consummate craftsman and a harmonist of considerable range and subtlety, everything he wrote is highly polished and designed with an unerring sense of balance and clarity of style. Indeed, Debussy once said that the graceful fleeting lines of Faure's music ' may be compared to the gesture of a beautiful woman without either suffering by the comparison '. These qualities characterise the Cello Sonata No. 2 in G minor, which was composed in 1921 when Faure was seventy-six years of age.

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.
