GRIEG'S SONGS

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Sung by ISABEL I'ANSON
Morning Dew (Morgenthan); The Old Song
(Das Alte Lied) ; First Meeting (Erstes Begegnen); Cradle Song (Wiegenlied); The First Primrose (Mit einer Primula Veris ); I love thee (Ich liebe dich)
THE shorter Piano pieces of Grieg are among the most popular music in existence.
His songs, of which there are nearly a hundred-and-fifty, are not so well known ; yet they deserve equal popularity.
Morning Dew, written when Grieg was twenty, is a song of sentiment, in which a lover declares that he wants no light save that from the beloved's eyes.
The Old Song tells a story of an old King who took a young wife. She was loved also by her page. The song only hints at the tragedy that came about—' both were doomed to perish, they loved one another so.' The First Meeting recalls the joy of lovo's first rapture.
The Cradle Song is sung by a father to his motherless babe.
In The First Primrose the flower is an offering to a ' lovely child of Spring.'
I love thee is perhaps the best-known of all
Grieg's vocal pieces. The music is not by any means most characteristic of him, but the emotional life of the brief song is intense.

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.
