: Liszt

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.

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.
