Haugtussa, Op. 67
Det syng: Veslemoy; Blabaer-Ll; M6te; Elsk; Killingdana; Vond Dag ; Ved GjaeUe-Bekiken sung by Emelie Hooke (soprano) with Ernest Lush (accompanist)
This song-cycle, which Grieg believed to be his finest achievement as a song-writer, consists of settings of poems in the Norwegian country dialect, or Landsmaal, by Arne Garborg. They concern a peasant girl whom a troU tries to lure to his mountain home; but she avoids him by taking refuge with her grandmother. Then one day, when She has taken her cows out to graze, she meet! a handsome boy and falls in love with him. Her feelings are described, and there is a charming interlude in the form of a ' Kidlings' Dance; but the young man proves unfaithful, and Haugtussa, broken in spirit, turns to the mountain-brook for solace. H.R.


Unknown: Vond Dag
Sung By: Emelie Hooke
Unknown: Arne Garborg.

Franz Reizenstein (piano)
This is the first of three recitals that will include Hindemith's three piano sonatas. They were written in 1936, and the first performances in this country were given shortly afterwards by Franz Reizenstein. At about this time Hindemith was obliged to leave Germany, and the first sonatta bears a quotation from Holderlin's poem Der Main in which the poet declared that however far he wandered from his home-land he would never forget the r.ver Main, by whose banks he had spent so many happy hours. The th:rd sonata is in four movements, the last being a Fugue. D.C.


Piano: Franz Reizenstein

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.
