Conducted by Sir HENRY WOOD
JL RE PASTORE , from which this aria is taken, is a dramatic cantata in two acts rather than an opera, and it is so described by Mozart. It was composed to a text by Metastasio which had been often used by other composers, as were all Metastasio's texts-as many as thirty or forty different settings of many of this famous poet's dramas are recorded. The first performance took. place at Salzburg on the occasion of a fete given at the Court in honour of Archduke Maximilian , who afterwards became Archbishop of Cologne. This beautiful aria is the only number from the work now at all frequently performed.
THE Pastoral Symphony, in its naive programme, reflects the simplicity, the charm, and the more tender side that Nature had for Beethoven. The first movement is entitled ' The awakening of pleasant sensations on arriving in the Country,' the second is called ' By the Brook,' the third ' The Peasants' merry Meeting.' and the fourth ' The Shepherds' song : glad and grateful feelings after the Storm.' Could anything be more straightforward ? As has been said ' the hearer is left with an impression of perfect serenity and calm happiness in the bosom of eternal Nature.'

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.
