Today's picture - Morecambe and Wise and Previn and Grieg
Donald Macleod reaches Grieg's best-known work today. He discusses the composer's twilight years and his piano concerto on Composer of the Week at 1200 and again at 1830. And, inevitably, our thoughts turn to Eric Morecambe, whose near-legendary interpretation of the work has been causing involuntary fits of laughter since Christmas 1971. The picture, from that landmark or British comedy, is from the BBC's picture archive.Listen online to Composer of the Week in HD Sound for seven days after transmission and download the free weekly podcast to listen to on your MP3 player or in the car.
