In her autobiography Mein Weg Lilli Lehmann, who included in her repertoire four of the five soprano roles in Mozart's Figaro, claimed that she varied her vocal quality to suit each role. Lucie Manen offers an explanation, based on her own researches, of how these changes were effected, and suggests reasons why this important aspect of vocal technique is neglected by singers of the present time, illustrating her argument personally and with records.
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.
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.
