Via Crucis LOUIS KENTNER piano
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.

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.
