Among Goldmark's compositions two of the best known are the overtures ' Sakuntala' and 'Penthesilea'. The latter is a concert overture based on Kleist's drama, which is roughly as follows:
During the siege of Troy, the Amazons, led by their Queen, Penthesilea, are allied to the Trojans against the Greeks. The mythical race of warrior women were allowed to be temporarily united to chosen heroes whom they first had to conquer in battle. Penthesilea seeks a personal encounter with Achilles himself. A tragic conflict arises from her failure to overcome Achilles and the love she conceives for him. Achilles, who returns her passion, consents to meet her once more in battle, secretly resolved to let her vanquish him. Penthesilea in her proud despair slays Achilles and subsequently stabs herself.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
