: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

SCHUBERT'S WINTERREISE
Sung by PARRY JONES (Tenor)
DIE WINTERREISE (The Winter Journey) is a setting of twenty-four songs by Wilhelm Milller , which Schubert composed in 1827, the year before he died.
The story is not so definite as that of the more familiar Maid of the Mill cycle, which has several times been broadcast.
A youth's romance is over, and he takes his lonely road in sorrow. Everything reminds him of his past happiness, yet promises no renewal of it. He dreams of May, and wakes to winter. He sees portents in nature of the final departure of hope, and of the coming of death.
Tonight we are to hear the first four songs in the cycle Gute Nacht (Good Night), Die Wetterfahne (The Weathercock), Gefrnrne Thranen (Frozen Tears), Erstarrung (Benumbed).

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.
