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.
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.
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.
