Saturday Night Music

Edvard Grieg

(15 June 1843 – 4 September 1907)

  1. Hi Sean,
    Grieg is one of my favourite composers whose pleasing style to me is instantly recognisable and I enjoyed this superb performance.
    You may also be aware of the Operetta “Song of Norway” depicted the fictionised life story of Edvard Grieg. The music was taken directly (as was common for an operetta of that era) from his work. Among the most notable songs in my opinion was “Strange Music” (based on Wedding Day at Troldhaugen), and “Hill of Dreams”.
    Best wishes

    1. Glad you enjoyed this, Lindsay, after your obviously safe return from Scotland.
