THE B B C ORCHESTRA
(Section B)
Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL
Conductor, ADRIAN BOULT
During October, 1739, Handel wrote a set of twelve Concerti Grossi, which were published the following year by John Walsh , ' at the sign of the Harp and Hoboy', Catherine Street, Strand. Corelli was the great master of the concerto grosso form, and therefore it was Corelli whom Handel took as his model.
' Siegfried's Journey to the Rhine', from The Twilight of the Gods, is a fine piece of pictorial writing describing the early morning after Briinnhilda's awakening and Siegfried's wooing on the fire-girt rock, Siegfried's farewell, and the beginning of his journey. Briinnhilda, standing on a rock, watches Siegfried's journey. The music portrays her moods, and various well-known motives in the opera are heard, such as Siegfried's motive, ' Victorious Love ', the ' Rhine ' motive, the ' Ring ' motive, and the ' Renunciation of Love ' motive.
Perhaps one of the most stirring pieces of tone painting in the whole of The Ring is the great Funeral March of Siegfried, which is heard in the Third Act of The Twilight of the Gods. Siegfried has been slain by Hagen, and Gunther and his men bear the body on their shields in the silence of the hills.
This solemn and deeply expressive march suggests a kaleidoscopic view of Siegfried's life from the beginning to the end. With supreme musical skill and imagination, Wagner introduces and welds together various significant motives connected with Siegfried in The Ring. We hear ' Siegfried's death blow ', ' Sigmund the Walsung ' 'The Recognition of Sigmund and Sieglinde ', ' The Sword Nothung " ', ' Siegfried the fearless ', ' Siegfried the warrior ', ' Brünnhilda ', etc.

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.
