: 'THE BACH FAMILY'

The BBC
Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
The most remarkable family in the history of music was undoubtedly that of the Bachs. The earliest record of the Bachs dates from the middle of the sixteenth century and the last representative, a grandson of Johann Sebastian , died in 1865. Throughout this period-from the age of Luther to that of Bismarckalmost the entire family practised music.
The three greatest Bachs were
Johann Sebastian and his two sons, Johann Christian and Carl Philipp Emanuel, whose music is represented in this evening's programme. C. P. E. Bach was a great innovator and helped to prepare the way for the sonatas and symphonies of Haydn and Mozart. Johann Christian is known as the English Bach , for he lived for many years in London as a teacher and composer of operas that were produced with great success at various theatres, chiefly the King's Theatre. He also ran orchestral concerts at the Hanover Square Rooms.

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.
