by Alastair FowleT
Mr. Fowler discusses the literary idea of the confidence man, the character who pretends to be what he is not to gain credit. He traces its evolution from early picaresque novels through Melville and Mark Twain to Thomas Mann and John Barth.

Part 2
Although Busoni wrote a large amount of piano music, he wrote few works for piano and orchestra. Apart from the early Konzertstiick and two later works, the piano concerto is his only work in this medium, certainly his only largeicale piece. It was completed in August 1904, when he was thirty-eight, and first performed three years later at a concert in Berlin, with the composer as soloist.
There are five movements, which
Busoni wished to be played without a break: Prologo a Introito; Pezzo giocoso; Pezzo serioso; All' Italiana, a tarantella making use of Italian popular songs; and Caniico, in which a six-part male chorus lings the Danish poet Oehlenschlager's Aladdin-a song of praise to Allah, the Almighty God in whom the world lives and moves. The work ends with a coda recalling material from the previous movement.

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.
