DIE WINTERREISE (The Winter Journey) is a setting of twenty-four songs by Wilhelm Milller , which Schubert composed in 1827, the year before he died.
The story is not so definite as that of the more familiar Maid of the Mill cycle, which has several times been broadcast.
A youth's romance is over, and he takes his lonely road in sorrow. Everything reminds him of his past happiness, yet promises no renewal of it. He dreams of May, and wakes to winter. He sees portents in nature of the final departure of hope, and of the coming of death.
Tonight we are to hear the first four songs in the cycle Gute Nacht (Good Night), Die Wetterfahne (The Weathercock), Gefrnrne Thranen (Frozen Tears), Erstarrung (Benumbed).

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
