ONE winter Goethe took a trip into the mountains and very naturally he wrote about it. The resulting poem was called Harzreise, and it is full of the rather sombre meditation characteristic of much of Goethe's work. It appealed to Brahms very strongly, though it is difficult to understand why Brahms, whose life was smooth enough, should have associated his sentiments with those of a pessimistic hermit, aloof and out of sympathy with the world, who is the subject of Goethe's poem. However, Brahms has succeeded in perfectly adjusting his mood to that of Goethe and Goethe's hermit. The music of this setting of three stanzas from the Harzreise is broadly melodious and dramatic, growing in intensity to where, towards the end, a choir of men's voices enters with an impressive appeal to the Almighty to grant to the solitary hermit the joy of hearing an echo of one strain of the music of His Heavenly Kingdom.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
