: THE SONGS OF HUGO WOLF

Sung by ROGER CLAYSON
(Tenor)
Songs from Goethe :
Spottlied (Ironical Song) from ' Wilhelm Meister *
Coptisches Liod-I (Won. derworker's Song)
Anakreon's Grab (Anacreon's Grave)
Blumengruss (Flower
Greeting)
Gleichund Gleich (Affinity) Frühlings ubera Jahr
(Spring)
THE first song is a jestingly philosophical reflection on the fortunes of two people. One has power and position ; the other has merely had Nature for teacher : though poor, he had a light heart.
The first of the two songs named after the Kophta or Egyptian wonder-worker, sums up much wisdom from many sources in declaring that it is foolish to wait on fools for improvement.
Anacreon's Grave. This is a meditation over the grave of the poet, Anacreon.
The Flower Greeting is a tiny song of one bringing a bunch of flowers, with a thousand greetings.
Affinity calls up a picture of an early flower visited by a bee. ' They surely must have been meant for each other,' is the reflection.
Spring depicts the awakening of the garden, with its lovely colours and its renewed life.

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.
