THE POUGNET-MORRISON-PINI
TRIO:
Jean Pougnet (violin); Anthony Pini
(violoncello); Angus Morrison (pianoforte)
HERBERT HEYNER (baritone)
The first three of the Wolf songs that Herbert He-is singing were written in the four days, October 27-30, 1888 ; they are the songs of the mysterious old harper in Goethe's novel, ' Wilhelm Meister '. The fourth song, ' Der Sanger also a Goethe setting, was composed about six weeks later. It was Wolf's habit to compose in spurts, and he composed all but one of his ' Goethe-Lieder ' (more than fifty songs) in the period, October 27, 1888, to February 12, 1889.
All three of the Harper's Songs are melancholy in mood. In. the first he broods over his loneliness ; in the second, over his destiny-compelled to beg his bread from door to door. The third is a setting of the often quoted lines : ' Who never ate his bread with tears, who never wept all through the long, sad night-he knows ye not, ye heavenly powers ! '
Dvorak's Trio in F minor, written in 1883, is a wholesome corrective to the popular view of him as a merely lyrical, colourful, ' nationalist ' composer. As Ottokar Sourek says, it is 'a magnificent work, unusually grave in character ; the music unfolds itself in a kind of gloomy, passionate defiance. It is as though the composer confronted Fate with a stubborn and persistent-Why? Not until the very end of the work does the prevailing sense of gloom make way for a feeling of peace and resignation. Hence the passion and power which permeate the work in thought, structure, and formal development; hence the tendency to a symphonic grandeur which can only be realised in chamber music by the sonority and expressive co-operation of the piano '.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of Providence (Row) NIGHT REFUGE AND HOME, by the Rt. Hon. Lord RUSSELL OF
KILLOWEN, G.C.M.G.
The Providence (Row) Night Refuge and Home was founded in 1860 and provides food and shelter for those who need it during the winter months, when distress is so keenly felt. It has accommodation for 112 women and children and 140 men. Each applicant who can give a reference obtains admittance for three weeks whilst looking for work. Besides their supper, bed, and breakfast, and the free use of bathrooms, such further help is given -clothes, tools, fares and so forth-as funds permit, in order to help these poor people to find employment.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to the Rt. Hon. Lord Russell of Killowen, G.C.M.G., [address removed]

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.

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.
