MOUSSORGSKY'S Songs

The Spirit of Heaven

Yeremoushka's Cradle Song
Gathering Mushrooms
WE know Modesto Moussorgsky (1839-1881) as one of the group of Russian composers called ' The Five' who, in the nineteenth century, with high patriotism and splendid determination, set Russian music on its feet, and for the first time in its history won recognition for Russia as a musical nation. Few of these men lived by music. Most of the group were state servants of some sort. For a time Moussorgsky was an officer in the guards. He threw up his commission and became a government servant in the lower ranks ; poverty soon came into his ill-regulated life, and drink hastened his death at the early age of forty-two.
In the fifty or so songs he wrote, we often get the benefit of Moussorgsky's bold free individuality and amateur status; sometimes, indeed, we have in his work the happiest product of the inspired amateur.
He had an astonishing variety of styles; some of them he took ready made from pre
' decessors, and some he hammered out for himself.
At one moment (as in that little masterpiece Gathering Mushrooms) he is cleverly combining a folk-song strain with the art-song manner; at another he is lyrical, in the manner of composers of other nations ; now he is frankly sentimental and again realistically descriptive or declamatory,

A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

: Mr. H. M. NEVINSON : ' A Walk in Central Africa'

PEOPLE who say that journalism ruins a writer's
. style can never have read Mr. Nevinson. A veteran war-correspondent who has seen fighting in three Continents during the last thirty years, and one of Massingham's famous team on The Nation, his journalistic writing has always been distinguished, and such books as his autobiography, ' Changes and Chances,' are written in a really noble prose. He has always been a fearless and resourceful fighter for freedom, and his visit to Central Africa in 1904-5 resulted in a striking exposure of the trade in slaves.

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.
