AN AFTERNOON CONCERT

on 5GB Daventry (Experimental)

View in Radio Times

From Birmingham
Relayed from Lozells Picture House
THE Second Peer Gynt Suite, rather less familiar than the First, contains four pieces :—
1. The Abduction of Ingrid, and her Lament.
At a Norwegian wedding, Peer seizes the bride and carries her off to the mountains.
2. Arab Dance. Peer is now in Morocco.
3. Peer Gynt's Return. Tired of wandering
Peer at last returns. He has a stormy voyage !
This movement merges into—
4. Solveig's Song. Peer's first love has remained faithful to him ; he finds her sitting at the door of the mountain hut and singing her sorrow and her longing.
LONDON heard Oberon under the Composer's direction a few weeks before his death at the age of thirty-nine. In that fairy-story
Opera Weber's gift for composing imaginative music, full of romantic and pictorial suggestion, rose to the heights of genius. In this fine Overture we hear all sorts of graphic ideas-the magic horn of Oberon, fairy music, and the more positive strains of human loves and triumphs.
