: Lieder

Sung by Amy Samuel (Soprano)
Beethoven's music was certainly inspired by his own deeply devotional spirit, though from all we know of him he had no need to bewail quite so many sins as the beginning of this song sets forth. It closes with a confident belief that the Lord has heard the singer's prayer and is taking the load from his spirit.
Although Schubert's tune is worthy of much better things, the poem of this song is a rather foolish little story, telling of the capture of a trout by an angler, as though from the fish's point of view. The poet is clearly in sympathy with the trout rather than with the fisherman. It is one of the melodies which Schubert used again; as chamber music enthusiasts know well, it forms a finely melodious movement in this quintet which is affectionately known, on that account, as the 'Trout Quintet'.
Schumann's expressive song sets forth how the Lotus flower closes in timid fear before the noonday-heat of the sun, and opens to the cool breath of the night.
The day was heavy with rain and storm, so the singer tells in Brahms' song, as he went from one neglected tomb to another; their names were so faded as to be hardly readable, and the first strain closes sadly with the word 'gewesen' (which means simply 'been'). But the song ends with the thought that instead the message should be 'genesen' (which means literally 'recovered from sickness').


Soprano: Amy Samuel.

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.
