In January, 1874, Ibsen wrote to Grieg, who was then thirty-one years of age, and making a name for himself as a national composer, and asked him to compose the necessary incidental music, which he briefly outlined, for a dramatised version of Peer Gynt. Grieg readily accepted the offer, and the play with Grieg's music was first performed with great success at the Christiana Theatre on February 24, 1876.
Grieg's Peer Gynt music is one of the most perfect examples of theatre music since it portrays with extraordinary pictorial vividness and suggests with great emotional expressiveness those dramatic climaxes and poetic moods of the play which seem to demand a musical background. Furthermore, a good proportion of the twenty-three vocal and instrumental numbers remain complete little tone poems if divorced from their histrionic associations.
Sibelius's ' King Christian ' Suite forms the incidental music to Adolf Paul 's tragedy of King Christian II, the sixteenth-century ruler of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, against whose treachery and tyranny Gustavus Vasa arose. Christian was driven from his kingdom, and in spite of an attempt to regain his power, he ended his days in prison, dying in 1559.

Like many other musicians, Ernest Chausson began as a lawyer, but at the age of twenty-five he gave up law for music. His first move was to enter Massenet's composition class at the Paris Conservatoire, and he also studied with Cesar Franck for three years. From Massenet he learnt to write with the utmost purity of texture and from Cesar Franck he derived his richness of harmonic colour and deep romantic feeling. These qualities are particularly discernible in Chausson's 'Poeme.' No better work could have been selected to show off Renee Chemet's distinctive qualities as a soloist.
Mme. Chemet is one of the foremost violinists of today. She combines all the elegance of the French style with the breadth and power of the German school. She made her debut as a soloist with Colonne s orchestra and soon afterwards appeared in Leipzig and Berlin under Nikisch. Since that time she has toured all over Europe, the United States, and Canada.
