(Fourth Season. 1929-301
Second Concert
MARGOT HINNENBERG-LEFEBRE (Soprano)
EDUARD STEUERMANN (Pianqforte)
THE programme has an interesting unity in this way that Eisler and Berg were both pupils of Schonberg. Both have already won for themselves positions of real importance in contemporary music, and the opera Wozzek by Berg is regarded as one of the outstanding works by the younger generation of German musicians. Each of the Sonatas is the first published work of its composer's, although neither is in any sense an immature essay. Both may be taken as fairly. representative of present day tendencies.
The poems which Sehonberg has chosen to set are. in themselves, somewhat perplexing. George, their author, is a representative of the re-action against the over-sentimental tendencies of the end of last century, and his economy of words has a somewhat stern effect. Schonberg's settings, dating from about 1908, are as strongly individual as anything he has given us. Short though each song is, they are invested with a distinctive atmosphere of their own, couched in an idiom which is very much Schonberg's own.
(Fifteen Poems from ' The Book ot the Hanging
Gardens,' by Stefan George )
Unterm Schutz von dichten Blattergriinden
(Beneath the shelter of the leaves)
Hain in diesen I'aradiesen wechselt ab mit
Bliitenwieson
(In this fair paradise wild heath and flowery mead are found)
Als Neuling trat ich ein in dein Cehege
(When first I passed within thy precincts)
Da meine Lippen reglos sind
(Because my lips are still)
Saget mir auf welchem Pfade heute sie vorfiberschreite
(Tell me where the path, today, thatshe will tread) Jedem Werke bin ich fiirdor tot
(Henceforth ev'ry other task I shun)
Augst und Hoffen wechselnd mich beklemmen
(Fear and hope in turn hold me in bonds)
Wenn ich heut' nicht demen Leib beriihre
(If today my arm may not enfold thee)
Strong ist uns das Glück und sprode
(Joy hath but a niggard hand)
Das sehone Beet betracht ich mir im Harren
(I wait, and gaze upon the garden flowers)
Als wir hinter dem beblümten Tore
(When behind that gate with flow'rs o'ergrown)
Wenn sich bei heihger Ruh'in tiefen Matten
(When 'mid the blissful peace and deepest languor)
Du lehnest wider ein Stiberweide am Ufer
(Thou leanest o'er a silv'ry willow on the bank)
Sprich nicht immer vou dem
Laub
(Speak not ever of the leaves' Wir bevolkerten die abends diistern Lauben
(We two woke to life the evening-twilit bower)

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.
