: Composer of the Week Robert Schumann

Schumann frequently reworked his pieces, even after they had already been published. Sometimes he was dissatisfied with his first thoughts and decided to rewrite, and sometimes friends - especially his wife, Clara - made suggestions.
When Schumann was unhappy with his original idea, it was often for a good reason, and his second version can be a distinct improvement. This week, Christopher Marshall introduces some of Schumann's first thoughts. The programme includes pianist Charles Rosen 's performances of the Impromptus on a Theme of Clara Wieck , Op 5 (First Edition) and Dichtungen fur das
Pianoforte (Poems for Piano), the original version of the Fantasy in C, Op 17, but with a different ending. Producer Christopher Marshall

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.
