Annees de Pelerinage
Premiere Annee: Chapelle de Guillaume Tell: Au lac de Wallenstadt; Pastorale: Au bord d une source: Orage; Vallee d'Obermann: Eglogue; Le mal du pays; Les cloches de Geneve played by Joseph Weingarten (piano)
This is the first of three recitals in which Joseph Weingarten will play Liszt's three volumes of piano pieces entitled Annies de Pelerinage. The first, the Swiss volume, and the second, the Italian volume (together with its supplement Venezia e Napoli) were both published in the eighteen-fifties, though they are made up, for the most part, of pieces written and published during Liszt's tours of Switzerland and Italy some ten years before. The third volume, which has no special title, consists mainly of pieces written during the years 1867-77, when Liszt was living at the Villa d'Este in Rome; it was published in 1883. In the Swiss volume, to be heard to-night, all the pieces, with the exception of 'Orage' and 'Eglogut,' appeared originally in the earlier publication, Album d'un Voyageur; though before including them in the Annies de Pelerinage Liszt expanded and revised them considerably, paying particular attention to the subtilisation of the piano texture.

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

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.
