QCHUMANN'S song is among that wonderful outpouring; of songs that came in the first few months of his happy marriage. The theme is the beloved one, steadfast of heart and lofty of mind. THE VAIN SERENADE is tliat of a lover who, outside his lady's house, begs her to admit him, but is rebuffed. ' Please go home to bed ! ' is all he gets after standing, nearly frozen, in the icy wind.
IN September, 1827, Schubert was taken by his friend Jenger on a three weeks' visit to Oratz, where he stayed as the guest of Dr. Pachler, a barrister whose wife was an excellent musician, well known to Beethoven. The time was spent in picnics, excursions, and a round of amusements. Schubert's famous setting of Who is Sylvia ? (the mock-serenade from Two Gentlemen of Verona) was composed during this visit and dedicated to the hostess. Allegro con brio (Quick, fiery) ; Introduction leading to Adagio molto (Very slow); Hondo, Allegretto moderato (Moderately quick)

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.
