This fine ballad was written by Brahms the year before he died, and is one of a set of six pieces which represent his genius as a writer for the keyboard at its highest. The middle section is particularly noteworthy for its wealth of key-colour. William' Murdoch in his book on the composer draws attention to the fact that this section is in the key of B major, of which Brahms was particularly fond : ' I should think ', says Mr. Murdoch, ' he enjoyed writing in it more than in any other, and he never used it to greater purpose than here. A feeling of warmth and lusciousness is produced, an atmosphere of repose'.

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.
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.
