: s THE AVANT-GARDE

Illustrated talk by Peter Stadlen
The adoption of atonality and the twelve-note system by Schoenberg and Webern was once considered by many musicians to be one of the most profound developments in twentieth-century music; but recent trends on the Continent have led to a reappraisal of this view. While the second Viennese school evolved a new approach to the technique of composition, the emergence of electronic music during the last decade has caused a reconsideration of the innermost nature of music itself.
The illustrations for this talk include recordings of both instrumental and electronic music made last year at the festivals of contemporary music at Darmstadt and Cologne.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
