10.3 OLIVE GROVES Selected Songs
IN 1857-8, when he was engaged upon the Music Drama, Tristan and Isolde, Wagner wrote five songs, two of which were published later under the title of ' Studies for Tristan and Isolde.' The opening melody of one of these songs, called Dreams. came into his head when he was working at Tristan in Venice, and he made use of it in the great love-duet in the Second Act of the Music Drama.
Later he arranged this song for small orchestra, and had it performed in 1858 as a birthday greeting for a friend, Frau Wesendonck.
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.
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.
