: An Orchestral Concert

National Orchestra of Wales
Conducted by Warwick Braithwaite

This Suite, which was part of the programme of his own music which Grieg conducted at his last appearance in London, in May, 1906, owes its origin to the conductor Seidl. It was Seidl's idea to arrange some of the popular pianoforte pieces for orchestra.

When Grieg himself saw these, the idea pleased him but he thought the orchestration rather Wagnerian for the slight nature of the tunes. He accordingly rearranged them more simply himself, and instead of the first number which Seidl had chosen - a piece called 'Bell Ringing', he substituted The Shepherd Lad, a little tender pastoral tune. The second number is the Norwegian Rustic March, the third Nocturne, and the fourth the jolly March of the Dwarfs which has been called 'superbly Norwegian and Griegian'.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
