Alpha's Girl Friend:
Via Crucis LOUIS KENTNER piano
Conductor, PETER GELLHORN
Liszt's Via Crucis, the Fourteen Stations of the Cross, was written in 1878-9, towards the end of his life. The text was compiled by Princess Sayn-Wittgenstein from biblical quotations, medieval Latin hymns and German chorales. The music shows an advanced use of experimental harmony, which led to the work being neglected in Liszt's own day; it was first published fifty years after his death, and the first performance did not take place till 1929. There are a number of short solo parts (normally sung by members of the choir) and the accompaniment may be played on either piano or organ-Liszt wrote a separate part for each instrument.

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
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.
