Part 2
Symphony: ' Mathis der Maler'
This Symphony is an arrangement of three excerpts from Hindemith's opera, Mathis the Painter. The subject and principal character of the opera is the sixteenth-century German painter. Mathis (or Mathias) Griinewald, and the movements which make up the Symphony were inspired by three of his paintings, ' Angels' Concert,' ' The Entombment,' and ' The Temptation of St. Anthony.'
The first picture is of angels kneeling before an altar, playing on stringed instruments. In the introduction to the movement there is heard an old German cradle song, ' Three angels were singing sweetly. The second movement portrays the Entombment of Christ. The third movement. ' The Temptation of St. Anthony,' opens with St. Anthony's ;cry of agony. Later we seem to hear alternately the Saint's prayer and the assault of his adversaries. Gradually the power of evil subsides and the hymn, ' Lauda Sion Salvatorem,' is heard.—HAROLD RUTLAND

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.
