Leopold!!

One of the best Bugs Bunny cartoons. 
Oh boy, this was used as the soundtrack on a Dutch cassette tape with the story of Robinson Crusoe retold for children. Peer Gynt is forever linked with that tape, I can dream the storyteller's voice out loud while this plays on RP. What a wonderful time machine we have here sometimes ....
Seriously, Robinson watching Friday escape the cannibals to the tune of 'In the hall of the mountain king', man, that music did so much for the story, loved it then love it still some odd 40 years later

I love RP, but occasionally I need a concentrated hit of classical music.  My go-to is Radio Swiss Classic.  No ads, and an excellent mixture of old favourites with more obscure composers. (Apologies to William for advertising it here, although it's hardly a rival!)



Thank You for the info!

Every time I hear this it reminds me of the Bugs Bunny cartoon that starts with this playing and they show morning by a lake and then Elmer Fudd and other hunters start blasting away at ducks with shotguns.
This is just so pretty.  Elevated out of my chair.  

Black Keys - harsh transition.
another blissful transition by the sultan of segues from Thinking of a Place…to this lovely ditty. Gracias, Wiliam.

Yup!

 If you get the opportunity, go see Bugs Bunny at the Symphony. They play Warmer Bros cartoons while a full symphony plays along. Amazing.
Not the same piece, but always reminds me of 'Bambi Meets Godzilla'.

Yes, I have issues.

100% agree.....
Perfect.  Thank you Edvard!  My parents had this album in their very eclectic collection.  Was played often.  Great way to grow up.
Wonderful 
GREAT TUNE!!  Bugs Bunny introduced me to it, when I was a little  kid.  Still great!  Thanx RP!

Please excuse my adolescent brain and this obtuse comment on this piece of beautiful music...but my initial glance saw the title as Morning Wood...not Mood. It made me chuckle a bit. Had to share. Sorry, Edvard!



Same.
I this was background music for a Three Stooges short where Curly is flicking  grapes in the mouths of unsuspecting patrons of the opera. The opera. The opera.  
First time I've ever heard anything from Peer Gynt on RP - Heaven - the whole suite is wonderful. That Mountain King  is a pretty 'stirring' chap 

I once had a bad case of  Allegretto.

But I found some suave that  took care of it. 
This compels me to dance around the May pole

Alas, its not May

Hence...no May pole  

How does one banish such misfortune?

Fantastic
Poor Edward G Robinson

Morning Mood / Wood - What is the difference?
Currently watching a storm form over a bay and this little ditty comes on the wireless...
Merry Melodies / Bugs Bunny introduced me to classical music when I was a small child. I am 67yrs old. ...They did a good job!

Yes just a little bit more 
It is so wonderful that you do this:  Jethro Tull followed by Grieg's Morning Mood.  These classical bits, as well as the great songs from the swing era, dropped into the mix surprizes us and makes us all realize that there is wonderful music that stirs the heart from every generation since the beginning of time.  One of the great things about RP is the fact that if you don't like this song, it will soon be over and you get something different.  That keeps one listening, but the clever effect is that the listener is won over by the middle of the track, begins to get interested in the chords and musicianship and begins to appreciate the strange track inserted into the regular mix. That person would have never clicked on that track or heard it selected by an algorithm anywhere else.   You are doing good work.  Keep it up.
The 2021 wildfire season is wrapping up with a decent rain.  Went for a hike in the Sage brush steppe behind the house for the first time in 6 weeks.  (!)

It feels like an optimistic morning.
isn't this the soundtrack to 'Bambi vs. Godzilla' ?
Such a wonderfully beautiful piece. Introduced to it by a woman I met while traveling around Europe on a Eurrail pass in late 70’s - she was from Hamburg

"The worst sort of Norwegian bombast" or some such was his later description of it.

Liking the classical music selections that show up on RP.  The timing is always right and sometimes really needed.
Perfect sunrise tune.
I love it when you throw in some Big Orchestral stuff!  
Truly one of the greatest of all time!

Your comment suggests you think no one ever heard it previous to its being recorded. Odd premise.
So nice.This is why I love RP. 
I find this really fitting right now, as I just woke up from my 30 minute lunch nap. Living one mile from the office definitely has its perks

Love this. I believe it was the soundtrack to Bambi versus Godzilla! A classic in cinema. 😉

Roger that, though still would be nice to have a recorded date listed on these older pieces, especially ones (like this one) that are quite excellent sounding.  LLRP!!

reminds me of this
My girlfriend and I visited Grieg's home, Troldhaugen, in Bergen, Norway a couple years ago. It was wonderful.

To be fair, RP does show the 'released' date vs. 'recorded' date - though I've often wondered if BillG could figure out how to list the composed date AND recorded date on these classical classics.  Long Live RP!!

Only on Radio Paradise. Thank you for the terrific mix of music.
Didn’t Bugs Bunny dig this tune I do

RP knows the meaning of mixing it up.
That first time hearing this (amongst others) outside of a cartoon soundtrack and understanding that it came first.

Perfect for a Friday morning - so serene, so calm.  Takes me back to the early 1960s when our headmaster would play this as were marched into morning assembly. Thanks B&R

LOL! No.  But I did see Iron Butterfly in Ottawa in the early 1970s and I seem to recall that the band played in a gadda da vida.

Exquisite.

As others have stated here and on other classical gems BillG plays, it's really nice to hear pieces like this thrown in the mix...and then waiting to hear what the segue master plays next...today he followed this up with Sycamore Feeling by Trenemøller.  As per usual, it's a wonderful fit and completely different than the classical piece.

As a kid I took piano lessons, and while I somewhat enjoyed the piano, I was more hooked on music than playing.  My dad's cousin, who is a pretty good piano player and brother of a conductor, gave me a book of classical masterpieces, which upon opening was like "uh...no...I don't think I can play that..." and I started playing a few of the pieces at my lessons.  I got pretty good at this piece, and even better at playing Grieg's other well known piece; Hall of the Mountain King.  The other one I mastered was The Wild Horseman by Robert Schumann.  I can (probably) still play some of these fairly well....in fact, years ago I played a few of these pieces at a house party; who knew playing the piano would ever help me score with girls?! 


Remind me of a beautiful movie... And I cann't remembert which on...

I was turned on to Grieg's Peer Gynt when I was still in Kindergarten. Definitely among the trippiest Classical!
