' Our Great Grandmothers' Poetry Boobs. GRACE MILLINGTON (Soprano)

: Lozells Picture House Orchestra

conducted by Paul Rimmer


Conductor: Paul Rimmer


Overture to ' Fierrabras '
SCHUBERT had bad luck with the Opera,
Fierrabras. Too late the libretto was found to be impracticable, and so the music was wasted.
The Overture is a splendid witness to its Composer's ability to write powerfully dramatis, forceful music.
(Clarinet) and NIGEL DALLAWAY (Pianoforte)
The Shepherd on the Heights
(For Soprano Voice, Clarinet and Pianoforte ORCHESTRA
Minuet in D (for Strings only)
The Erl King (Transcribed for Orchestra)
The ' Unfinished Symphony '-Second Movement.
THE ERL KING, one of the finest dramatis songs in existence, pictures a father who in hastening home on horseback, carrying his sick child. The ghostly Erl King, a figure of ill-omen, flies with them, unseen and unheard by the father, but both seen and heard by the boy.
It will be possible to follow, in this transcription, the action in each-verse of the song, thue: The hard riding through the night (verse 1). the boy's terror at seeing the ghostly figuM (verse 2), the Erl King's wheedling invitation (verse 3), the boy's renewed terror and the father's attempt to comfort him (verse 4), the Erl King's second invitation (verse 6), the boy's last outcry and the father's consolation (verse 6), the Erl King's grasp of the boy (verse 7), and the boy's death (verse 8).

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.
