: Opera from Bayreuth Wagner Festival 'THE FLYING DUTCHMAN'

(original version)
Conducted by Victor de Sabata
Continued in the Regional programme at 6.0
The very rarely heard original version of The Flying Dutchman differs in several respects from the familiar form of the opera. Neither the overture nor the end of the opera has its present tenderly poetic conclusion ; the scoring is even heavier and more brassy than in the final version ; most important of all, the work plays without a break from start to finish.
The story is based on Wagner's favourite theme : the redemption of a sinner through a woman's love. The hero, a Dutch skipper, is condemned for blasphemy to roam the seas till the Day of Judgment-unltss he can find a woman who will love him faithfully (for which purpose he is allowed ashore once every seven years). One day his ship anchors alongside a Norwegian vessrl, both sheltering from a storm. He and the Norwegian captain. Daland, become friends and he accompanies Daland to his home. There the Dutchman and Daland's daughter. Senta, fall in love. Her lover, Erik, tries in vain to win her back, but the Dutchman, believing he has lost her, puts to sea. In despair Senta throws herself from a cliff ; the Dutchman's ship sinks ; and the transfigured forms of the lovers are seen rising from the sea.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Geza Frid
Geza Frid , of Hungarian nationality, is well known both as composer and pianist. He was born in 1904 and began studying the piano at the early age of five. Later he entered the Budapest Academy of Music, where he continued his piano studies and also studied composition under Bela Bartok.
Frid's String Quartet was performed in Budapest and London in 1927, and since then he has composed several new works, including a concerto for pianoforte and choir, which was broadcast in 1935, with the composer at the piano. His orchestral suite has been performed in Paris, Amsterdam, Budapest, Boston, and New York.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
