RESPLENDENT NIGHT, ono of Schönberg's earlier works, is based on a poem by Richard Dehmel , which is prefixed to the score of the work. It embodies a fantastic, highly imaginative conception, telling of a man and a woman walking over a barren heath on a cloudless moonlight night. The woman has betrayed the faith which she owed to the man. Ho reassures her, telling her that this glorious night transfigures all things. The two pass on through the night.
The music of this work is distinctly descended from the German nineteenth-century style, and follows the general lines of statement, development, and recapitulation of ' tunes.' But there are so many tunes, and their treatment is so complex, that the most experienced musician could hardly hope immediately to follow the music in detail without the score. One should, rather, try to appreciate it as a tone-picture, and as an expression of the spirit of the poem, dominated by the atmosphere of the resplendent, moonlit night.

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.
