THE artist in whose life this symphony describes
-L an episode is, of course, Berlioz himself. He himself left a description of what his music tells us here—the dreams of an ardent spirit who has tried to poison himself with opium. The work is built on a ' motto ' theme, an idée fixe, which pursues the dreamer everywhere. The lirst movement describes all the bewildering tumult of heart of one who has fallen violently in love. The second is a ball where he meets his beloved, and the third describes a summer evening in the country. In the fourth he dreams that he has murdered his beloved and is marched to'the' scaffold, and the fifth is a very orgy of terror. The idee fixe, whose changed shapes have a large share in these different scenes, is first heard at the opening of the main (allegro) part of the first movement, after the slow (largo) introduction.
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.
