Peer Gynt Suites: Lyric Pieces[CD]
~ H kon Austb
Composer Edvard Grieg was at the forefront of a flourishing of creativity in Scandinavian culture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, fired by the folk music and stories of his native Norway. Unsurprisingly, his most popular music falls within this grouping. Peer Gynt, incidental music composed for Henrik Ibsen's play of the same name, if rife with evocations of folk melodies. Selections from Grieg's inimitable Lyric Pieces for piano flesh out a disc which miniaturizes but does not minimize the influence of Grieg on classical music.
