Op. 27, No. 3
RICHARD STRAUSS (born 1864) is well known to us all as one of the most famous of living composers, whose Orchestral works and Operas are performed over a great part of the world. Last year Strauss came to London to conduct the first British performance of his Rosenkavalier music, arranged as the accompaniment to a film. We remember, too, his conducting one of the B.B.C.'s National Concerts at the Albert Hall.
The songs of Strauss have contributed less to his fame than his larger works, but among the hundred-and-twenty or so that he has written some have become very popular. Leading characteristics of his songs are romantic feeling, rich harmony and freedom of form.
Zueignung, a great favourite, is frankly tuneful and effective-just a lover's thanksgiving.
Nichts is the reply of one who has been asked to describe his Queen of Song. What can we say of supreme splendour such as that of the sun ? he asks. It cannot be described. We only know it as the source of life and light. No more can ho tell of the glories of his Queen.
In Ich trage meine Minne a lover apostrophises his lady, declaring that he will adore in secret her who sheds light in the darkest night. This song is unlike most of Stiauss' love-songs. It is simple-minded music, with a bright, clear melody. The first verse (which recurs at the end) might have been taken from a volume of German folk-songs.
Heimlichc Aufforderung starts off with a genial tune—' Eat, drink and be merry, love, on this festive day.' Soon the voice is lowered-' but afterwards we wilt steal forth into the garden together.' The whispering tone becomes more glowing, but the song ends in tranquillity.

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.
