This week he deals principally with ' Man and Superman' and ' How to Listen'

: KODALY

Max Gilbert (viola)
BBC Chorus
George Thalben-Ball (organ)
Conductor, Zoltan Kodaly
Jesus and the Traders
6.37 app. Serenade, for two violins and viola
6.55 app. Missa Brevis
(First performance in England)
The Serenade represents a typically Hungarian aspect of Kodaly s art-rhapsodic, deliberately rough-hewn, or naive. Another, more severe, aspect of his art is represented by the unaccompanied Motet Jetus and the Traders, originally set by the composer to English words, and also by his recent Missa Brevis. The style of this liturgical Mass is strictly tonal and Kodaly's power is revealed here in his ability to bring new life to the old forms

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.
