played by Marcella Barzetti
Barlumi (Gleams) dates from 1917; it consists of five impressionistic pieces in varying moods: Non lento rroppo, Lento, Vivace, Lento misterioso, and Molto vivace. The three Inventions are from a set of eight Petrassi wrote in 1944; they are headed: Moderamente mosso, scorrevole; Tranquillo; and Presto, leggero. The Divertimento Conirappuntislico, one of Ghedini's most considerable piano works, was composed in 1940. Casella's Six Studies were written in 1944; the first four, to be played in this programme, are Major Thirds (Presto), Major and Minor Sevenths (Allegro moto vivo). Legato Fourths (Moderate), and Repeated Notes (Allegro molto vivace ed agitato).

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.
