THE B.B.C. LIGHT ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THOMAS, although known almost solely now by Mignon, was the composer of at least twenty operas and full-sized ballets which enjoyed great popularity in the second half of last century. In his own day, indeed, he was easily the most popular of composers for the Paris stage. The latter part of his life was spent, however, in teaching, as head of the famous Paris Conservatoire, a post which he held for twenty five years. It was the success of his opera Hamlet, following on Mignon, which won him that distinction, and to Mignon he owed also the award of the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour which was given to him on the occasion of its thousandth performance.
The opera Raymond, of which only the Overture is now played, although that is well known and popular, appeared in 1851. MEROK is a tiny village in Norway, situated at the head of the Geirangerfjord. Gaunt hills of grey and black granite, from four to five thousand feet in height, rise almost straight up from the water's edge and cast their reflection in the glassy stillness of the fjord.
This work, which is written for a small orchestra, incorporates a Norwegian folk-song, heard at the outset as an oboe solo.
