About

Most recordings feature only suites from the incidental music but this [long-awaited] recording of Peer Gynt from Aeon, presents the score unabridged, in a spectacular new English version. Text and music thus combine to form fascinating imaginary tableaux, a true invitation to follow in in the footsteps of Peer the storyteller (or inveterate liar) from Norwegian villages to Egypt and back again…by way of the kingdom of the trolls! Sung in Norwegian, spoken in English.
 
"the purity, innocence and almost magical charm of Inger Dam-Jensen is something not to be missed. On top of that there is a finesse and delicacy about the Suisse Romande Orchestra under Guillaume Tourniaire which makes this new recording altogether more rewarding…this is a truly outstanding Peer Gynt." IRR May 2005 [French version]
 
Actors:
Alex Jennings (Peer Gynt)
Haydn Gwynne (Åse, Solveig, girl in green, Anitra)
