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.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
