Wagner
Prelude and Love's Death (Tristan and Isolda)
Siegfried's Journey to the Rhine Venusberg Music (Tannhauser) Overture, The Flying Dutchman March (Tannhauser)
This afternoon's programme of Wagner's music consists almost entirely of the composer's greatest contributions to symphonic literature. The ' Prelude and Love's Death' from Tristan and Isolda epitomises the tragedy of the whole music drama in a manner both vivid and highly concentrated. As an example of magnificent climax and expressive love music the ' Prelude and Love's Death ' is surely without equal. ' Siegfried's Journey to the Rhine', from The Twilight of the Gods, is a fine piece of pictorial writing describing the early morning after Brünnhilda's Awakening and Siegfried's Wooing on the fire-girt rock, Siegfried's farewell, and the beginning of his journey. Wagner's genius for tone painting is again seen in the Venusberg Music and The Flying Dutchman Overture.
These three items alone are enough to show what an inuneasurable loss to symphonic music it was that Wagner had neither the time nor the inclination to compose a series of symphonic poems after the style of those of Liszt.

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.
