The Sound and the Fury 

BBC Four's The Sound and the Fury: A Century of Modern Music traces the turbulent history and ground-breaking music of the last century, uncovering how the last 100 years have changed music and the way we listen to sound forever. The series explores why individual composers felt compelled to create the challenging music they did and how they were influenced by the upheavals of their time.

The series features specially filmed performances from a number of ensembles including the London Sinfonietta, which can been seen in full on the Red Button after each programme. This week features music by Oliver Messiaen, Gyorg Ligeti, Iannis Xenakis and Harrison Birtwistle.*

Red Button digital text changes

We are currently making some changes to the BBC's Red Button text services. We are performing some technical work behind the scenes to remove the final parts of the publishing processes still powered by the recently discontinued Ceefax service.

We've tried to keep any changes to the public service to a minimum, but there will be some alterations to the content provided. Details of the changes are listed on the Red Button service on p998.

Correction: This blog post originally incorrectly stated that The Sound and the Fury features music by Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern and Charles Ives.  This has now been updated.
