About

Griegís incidental music for Ibsenís play Peer Gynt (1874-5) won immediate success and ranks among his most enduringly popular compositions, its huge range of orchestral tone-colours and creative use of space captured on this recording by placing actors, chorus, and folk musicians both on stage and behind the scenes.

Foran Sydens Kloster, composed in 1871 as an interlude for BjÝrnsonís heroic play Arnljot Gelline, and Bergliot, a monodrama written in the same year and orchestrated in 1875, reveal Grieg as a master composer of dramatic and lyrical stage music.

This recording includes authentic folk musician recordings as well as the original narration.

ďNaxosís ongoing series of Grieg orchestral music has been offering performances basically as fine as any in the catalog. These performances of the two canonical Peer Gynt Suites are gorgeous, perfectly paced, and thrillingly recorded.Ē Classics Today on 8570236
