DR Ellington Broadcasts – Program 18

The fourth ”goodie” for September is program 18 in the Duke Ellington series broadcasted by the Danish Radio in the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.

As usual, it is available in the ”Goodies of the Month” section of the DESS Lobby (DESS-rummet).

The program was broadcasted on March 29, 1985 and the presenter is Erik Wiedeman. It is – like the broadcast on March 22, 1985 – entirely devoted to the music of the ballett ”The River”. Together, the two programs includes all the movements of ”The River” in different stages of development.

The program starts with the piano version of ”The River” from May 25, 1970. It is followed by ”The Meander” – also a piano version – from May 11, 1970. It was meant to be played in Program 17 but because of a mix-up ”The Lake” was played instead. ”The Meander” is the third movement

The orchestral version of ”The Lake” (May 25, 1970) comes next. It is the fifth movement of the suite.
