BRAHMS' SONGS
Sung by ANNE THURSFIELD
(Mezzo- Soprano)
Sandmannchen
Op. 7, Treue Liebe (Tnie Love) Op. 14, Ein Sonnett (A Sonnet)
Op. 32, Nicht mehr zu dir zu gehen (I promised that I would see thee no more)
Op. 43, Von ewiger Liebe (Love is for ever) Op. 47. Botschaft (The Message)
Op. 48, Der Gang zum Liebsten (The
Watchful Lover)
Op. 58, Blinde Kuh (Blind Man's Buff)
Brahms was one of the greatest of song writers, and a mainstay of lieder singers. Ho was writing songs all his life, Opus 3 containing his first examples, and Opus 121 his last-indeed, this was the last work he ever wrote. He composed more than two hundred songs in all, and they include lyrical and love songs, gypsy and folk songs, and religious songs. Many of them are in the repertory of every singer, and are familiar to all interested listeners, for repetition, far from tiring the listener, tends to enhance his appreciation. There are lovers of Brahms who consider that his songs display the composer at his greatest, and though that is a judgment not generally accepted, it is very largely by his songs that Brahms has endeared himself to a wider public that only recently has had the opportunity to hear his works in the larger form. It is none the less a fact that a public will pour out its affection more readily to a composer who can give them fine songs to sing than for one whose hold on them is limited to the concert hall. And no more appealing songs than those of Brahms have been written. As sung by Anne Thurs field. a lieder singer in the very front rank, the songs in this week's ' Foundations of Music ' series will afford a rare pleasure to those who take delight in Brahma's treasure house.

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.
