THE one form of music which I do not like composing,' said Beethoven, ' is song.'
It is certainly not by his songs that he wins our reverence and thanks, though he gave tho world a few which stand worthily beside the symphonies and string quartets—this series among them. Composed in 1H15, and published a year later, with a dedication to Prince Lobkovitz, they form a real song cycle, and should be sung without breaks between them. The poems are by Alois Jeitteles , a young student of medicine, and youth's passionate longing is the mood of all six. The first thinks of song as bridging tho gulf which stretches between the lovers, and the second imagines a primrose path to a dreamland where they shall meet. The third bids the swallows and the little brooks, the clouds and breezes, hear a message to the distant loved one, and the fourth, following a like train of fancy, would have the breezes carry the singer to her. The fifth recounts the beauties of spring, the joys it brings to all the world except the lonely )over's heart, and the last is a dedication of all the songs to her whose love inspired them. In it Beethoven's music recalls the melody of the first song, but with a new and deeper meaning, lending the close of the cycle a sense of spiritual exaltation above the world of hard reality.

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.
