: The Foundations of Alusic SCHUBERT'S WINTERREISE AND SCHWANENGESANG

sung by GEORGE PARKER (baritone)
Winterreise (Winter Journey) :
Der Leiermann (The Hurdy-Gurdy
Man)
Schwanengesang (Swan Song)
Liebesbotschaft (Love's Message)
Kriegers Ahnung (Warrior's Foreboding)
Frühlingssehnsucht (Spring Song) Standchen (Serenade)
Aufenthalt (Resting Place)
IT SEEMS INCREDIBLE that in the last year of Schubert's life, when even in that year alone he had written The Winter Journey ' cycle, ' The Swan Song ' cycle, the Symphony in C, the Quintet, and any number of other wotks, he yet could not afford a holiday. It is unbelievable that the publishers and the public could have been so absolutely blind to his genius, even to the profit they might have made out of it. The songs in the ' Swan Song ', which is not really a cycle but a collection of fourteen settings of poems, six of which were by Heine, were the last he ever wrote. The
. group contains some of his most lovely songs; in colour and invention they are as varied as are the poems they interpret, and it is clear that Schubert had got over the depression which obsessed him during the composition of the ' Winter Journey '. The last song of all, Die Taubenpost , is very characteristic. It is sunny, ingenious, and with a Schubertian lilt ; in short, Schubert being himself. There is nothing whatever to suggest that Schubert was anticipating death, and although it belongs to the group called ' Swan Song', there is no suggestion whatever of a last contribution before leaving earth.

A Hundred Years of Trade Unionism
J. L. HAMMOND
THIS YEAR, the Trade Union Congress and others are celebrating one of the most remarkable incidents in trade-union history, that of the trial of the Dorsetshire Labourers in February, 1834. This centenary provides a good occasion for reviewing the history, the present position, and the possible future, of trade-unionism in this country. That is the function of this series. It will begin this evening with a review by J. L. Hammond of the history of trade-unionism during the past hundred years, together with a special introduction to the incident of'the Dorsetshire Labourers, a dramatic interlude which is to be the subject of next week's broadcast.
Mr. J. L. Hammond is the author of ' The Rise of Modern Industry ', ' The Age of the Chartists ', and other books. He is the joint author with his wife of 'The Village Labourer, 1760 to 1832 '; ' The Town Labourer, 1760 to 1832 '; and ' The Skilled Labourer, 1760 to 1832

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.
