BRAHMS' SONGS

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Sung by DALE SMITH
Nachklang (Echo)
Ich sah als Khabe Blumen bluhn (When a boy I saw the flowers blooming)
THE ECHO in the first song is a sorrowful afterthought of the golden hours that are past.
In the next song the same poet, Klaus Groth , makes the same moan . again—' Where now is the glory of my youth ? ' This kind of mental helplessness sadly afflicts Ger
' man poetry.
Brahms, like our Stanford, Vaughan Williams , and Holst, was fond of arranging the folk-songs of his country. One of the most exquisite and most popular of these ' arrangements ' is the little song about the Sandman who comes round
- about dusk and - drops sand into children's eyes and sends them to sleep.
The Serenade, also n. folk-song, has an unassuming tune with a very pretty phrase coming in at the end of each verse like an afterthought.

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.
