SONGS set to prose words are sufficiently unusual to have an interest of their own ; prose does not so readily attract a composer as rhythmic verso. But these songs have the further special interest that the lyric prose of their texts is by Debussy himself ; that and the expressive music to which he has set them belong to the same period of his career as ' L'Aprcs midi d'uno Faune,' the period which many people regard as his best.
THE greater part of Max Reger 's short life was a series of conflicts with almost every section of the musical world, and only in his last years did anything like recognition of his great gifts coino to him. He was not one who cared for honours and rewards and, though in his latter years these were accorded him in generous measure, it probably meant far more to him that the best intelligences of the world of music had begun to recognize him as an immensely sincere composer with a profound reverence for beauty.
The String'Quartet in F Sharp Minor is a splendid example of his mature stylo-big and impressive.

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.
