: The Foundations of Music

SCHUBERT - MISCELLANEOUS SONGS

Der Wanderer ('The Wanderer')
Lied des gefangenen Jagers (Song of the Captive Huntsman)
Gesange des Harfners II ('Harpor's Song')
Der Musensohn (The Muse's Son)
The most heedless listener must now begin to realize something of the extent of the rich heritage in which he has a share in Schubert's songs. They have been sung as Foundations of Music 'during several weeks of this centenary year, but there are so many that even were nothing else done, they could of themselves provide material for the series for about half a year, and even then there would be some over, from the operas, plays, and sacred works. And their variety is almost as amazing as their number.
'The Wanderer' is a song of exile in which the singer asks of the unfriendly world about him where happiness may be found. At the end he hears a spirit voice answer his question, telling him that where he himself is not, there may happiness be found. Listeners will remember that Schubert himself made a pianoforte fantasy of this song and that Liszt elaborated it in a version with orchestral accompaniment.
Harper's Song' is the second of three songs of Goethe's, taken from the tale of Wilhelm Meister. There is a sad little prelude, softly played, and then the Harper sings very simply, 'Who ne'er his bread with tears did eat ... he knows you not, you powers of heaven.' The accompaniment, no less simple, suggests the thrumming of the harp-strings.

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.
