: THE B.B.C. NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Barker
Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
Rossini was only twenty-one when his opera-buffa, L'Italiana in Algeri, appeared in Venice. But his position as one of the most popular composers of the day was already established, by the charm of his own personality almost as much as by his genius for music, and in the previous year, 1812, he had produced no fewer than six operas. It was in one of these that he first made notable use of a device which was afterwards recognised as peculiarly his own, although he could make no claim to its invention-a long crescendo, rising gradually from quite soft tone to the fullest volume of sound which could be drawn from the orchestra of that simpler age. He made use of it so frequently that for years he was known to a very wide circle of admirers as ' Signor Crescendo '.
L'Italiana in Algeri was another popular success. The opera itself has long ago gone from, the repertoire, but the Overture is still a popular item in concert programmes. It is, indeed, a characteristic example of Rossini's wonderful gift for sparkling melody, and his favourite device of the crescendo is used very effectively.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
