A Grieg Programme
Suite No. 2, Peer Gynt
I. Abduction of the Bride; 2. Arabian Dance; 3. Return of Peer Gynt ; 4. Solveig's Song
Homage March, Sigurd Jorsalfar
The drama of the Norwegian poet Bjornson, Sigurd Jorsalfar (Sigurd the Crusader), is a tale of Norway in the time of the Crusades. Sigurd and his brother Eystein, sons of the great Harald, are fierce rivals, each reigning over part of Norway. At the end of the play they become reconciled and dedicate themselves jointly to the service of their country.
Grieg wrote incidental music for the production of the play, afterwards recasting several of the movements in the form of a very effective Suite, second in popularity only to the two Suites from his music to Ibsen's Peer Gynt. The three movements have all the vividly picturesque manner of Grieg.

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.
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

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.
