THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

SCHUBERT—MISCELLANEOUS SONGS
Sung by GEORGE PARKER (Baritone)
Philoktet (Philoctotes)
Fischerlied (' Fisher Song ')
Nacht und Traume (Night and Dreams)
Der Geisteitanz (Spectre's Dance)
Lied (Claudius)
Dcr Seluffer (' The Seaman ')
THE poem of ' Philoktet ' is by Mayrhofer, whose tribute to Schubert was quoted in these notes on Monday. In this song Philoctetes complains to Ulysses that his bow, once the messenger of death to the Trojans, has been- taken from him, he does not know why. He begs the. wise o!d King to pity him and win it back for him.
LIKE the ensuing song of Claudius, ' Fischerlied' tells of contentment and happiness.
It is a very fanciful picture of the fisherman's treasures, making the most of the beauties of the water and of returning to land and home, taking no account of trials nor hardships. There are eight verses, not all necessary for an understanding of the song, as the same sentiment is repeated a good deal, and all are sung to the same simple, straightforward melody, with a calm, flowing movement.
ONE of the best-known of Schubert's songs
' Nacht und Traume ' is in praise of the calm of holy night and of the dreams it brings with it. The pianoforte part is throughout in waving semiquavers.
A Playful Revue in a series of Gambols by RONALD FRANKAU and his
CABARET KITTENS
' Why be bored, depressed, morose,
When Kittens can supply the dose
Which makes the oldest people scoff At Glands advised by Voronoff ? '

GEISTERTANZ, in rapid, 6-8 time, with a little interlude and recitative in the middle, tells of the ghosts that rise from their graves as the clock strikes midnight, and dance about their tombs.
CALLED simply ' Song,' the innocent poem of Claudius tells of contentment and happiness in simple things. There are six verses, sung to the same melody, and the singer sets forth the things which he neither has nor envies. Crowns and sceptres, riches and luxury, are nought to him; he is iiappy in his humble state.
IN the last song, to a text by Meyrhofer, (the song is dedicated by Schubert to the poet) he sings of winds and storms, which the sailor must face courageously.

THE B.B.C. DANCE ORCHESTRA
Pprsonally conducted by JACK PAYNE
ANOTHER 'revue in miniature' from Rex
Evans and Rowland Leigh. Rex Evans has the intimate art of cabaret at his fingers' tips. The famous syncopated singer is shortly to make his first appearance in revue when Chariot's Show of 1928, as I believe it is to be called, comes to the Vaudeville Theatre. Rex Evans has been associated with Andre Chariot in many of his weekly broadcasts. Be sure to listen tonight. In Rowland Leigh we have one of the cleverest writers of smart lyrics-and Rex Evans and Co. certainly know how to ' put them across.'

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.
