: 'Poet's Love'

(Dichterliebc)
(Schumann)
A new English Translation by ROBERT WHISTLER
(First Performance)
HERBERT HEYNER (Baritone)
0 Springtime Magic of the May I tell my Love
The Rose and the Lily
When to your Eyes I lift my own I'll pour out my Soul In Rhino
Why blame thee now ?
If these Flowers could but know
While Flutes and Fiddles are pleading If I but hear the Ditty,
A Youth he loves a Maiden
This radiant Summer Morning I dreamed, and I was weeping
When Night falls and Dreams come From Legends old
My old and evil Fancies
IT has been said of these poems by Heine, of which Schumann has made this series of songs, entitled Dichterliebe, that their delicacy of language and their trend of thought make them untranslatable into English. Nevertheless, they have been many times translated, though it is doubtful whether any former English versions will prove to be of equal worth with these new versions made by Robert Whistler , whose recently-published translations of a number of the German poems set by Brahms in his songs were acknowledged to be amongst the best work of the kind recorded in our day.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
