Due to a family bereavement, Ben Johnson and James Baillieu will no longer perform Die schöne Müllerin at today’s Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert, live from Edinburgh. We are therefore very lucky to have James Gilchrist and Anna Tilbrook standing in to perform the work. The pair have performed Schubert widely together and have recorded both this cycle and Winterreise to great acclaim.

In honour of this evening’s broadcast of Die schöne Müllerin, Norman Wisdom introduces us to ‘Ungeduld’. Lucky for us, however, a more suitable pairing of Mark Padmore and Paul Lewis perform on BBC Radio 3

This video is taken from the 1959 film The Square Peg. Norman and Mr Grimsdale are council workmen mending the road outside an Army base when they come into conflict with the military. Shortly afterwards, they get drafted and fall into the clutches of the Sergeant they have just bested. They are sent to France to repair roads in front of the Allied advance but get captured. Norman takes advantage of a useful similarity to impersonate General Schreiber and manages to return a hero.
