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!!

always makes me think of Don Pardo, "Good morning, sleepyheads!"
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.

Funny, in hearing the Blue Lips song by Regina Spektor my adolescent brain was thinking of Blue this and Vein that, and yes, the Morning Mood did seem to be Morning Wood when I first saw it....

I just did a double-take myself, then had to search the comments to see if anyone was bold enough to admit this...

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

You mean the Iron Butterfly song with the drum solo?

 

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.
 Good morning!

Same here.  :)

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...

Wonderful, especially in the hands of  Karajan conducting... Thanks Bill keep them coming.

I was turned on to Grieg's Peer Gynt when I was still in Kindergarten, I think. Definitely among the trippiest classical! Sibelius jams, too!
absolutely lovely
always think of Don Pardo
he lived here in Tucson 
 Ahhh, ok, thanks for letting me know!

Great to hear this again-and where else? Reminds me of my train ride to Bergen Norway, at the peak of the mountain pass (the highest in Europe someone said). Sublime...

The album photo says it was released in 1876.  I didn't know they had CDs then.

 
Yes, it is very pretty.

Well, as for CDs in the 19th century, you know those Vikings ... innovative hard working folks.

It's more than a bit interesting to note how familiar the Warner Bros. & MGM & Disney cartoonists were with the classical repetoire.

Yep. 

To this day, I can not take opera seriously.  It goes back to watching too many Three Stooges and the boys were shooting grapes into the mouths of the opera singers.  


Yeah, well, most of the rest of us discount those associations. The reality of a magnificent dawn sun rise with this as the soundtrack, and Bugs Bunny hunting Elmer, are two entirely, infinitely different dimensions of creation.

Skydog is correct.

Spring has sprung!

Time for outdoors: The convergence of space, light, time, and MUSIC!

Oh yeah, it's repetitive, redundant, and derivative too - a rip-off of some Floyd or Zeppelin tune - belongs in a Tarantino film.

 

Can't dance to it.  Well, I can't, anyway.

Thanks so much for playing this song! 

A few days ago I wanted to include it in some pre-show music but I had no idea what it was named or where to get it.
All I could recall is that it is used in cartoons or other shows where you see green peaceful pastures and the like. 

Thanks again.  



Love classical music from this era! Would love to hear more Ravel (other than Bolero).

Certainly agree with the clarion call for more classical pieces!! Something like Borodin's Polvtsian Dances, Sant-Sans Danse Macabre etc. 
And for those out there who wish for some "feel good" go to the web and search for Flash Mob's gig on a morning train in Copenhagen - simply heart-warming.

More cowbell!
For a born rocker -- this is exaltation. More classical, please, some of our fellow RP listeners might benefit from the soul food.  How about some Mendelsohn? That oughta fix them...
