Proms Feature: Schubert's Sommerreise


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.
In the spring and summer of 1825, Franz Schubert travelled through the breathtaking landscape of Upper Austria, performing recitals and beginning to compose his Great C major Symphony. It was to be the holiday of a lifetime. For the bicentenary of the composer's birth, poet and German scholar David Constantine retraces this journey to explore the sources - physical and Romantic - of Schubert's passionate depiction of nature and to reflect on how this sunny summer break - this Sommerreise - was to prepare him for the autumn and winter of his tragically short life. With
Simon Russell Beale as Schubert and the voices of singer Ian Bostridge , conductor Roger Norrington ,
Schubert scholars Elizabeth Norman
McKay, Nicholas Rast and Marie-
Agnes Dietrich and Romantic experts Philip Brady and Peter Branscombe. Repeat

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.
