I always feel Grieg is a greatly under-rated composer, and I've grown to love his shorter folk-related works for both solo piano and for orchestra. This is a wonderful collection of hummable tunes, ideal for those who enjoy not-too-demanding classical music.

Fine if not perfect performances of wonderful music 7 Nov. 2010
By G.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These marvelous works are certainly not heard as often as they deserve to be. The Lyric suite is an orchestration of five of the pieces from Grieg's gorgeous Lyric Pieces op.54 for piano. The orchestration of four pieces was originally made by Anton Seidl, but was retouched by Grieg (who also added Shepherd Boy). The original piano suite contains some of the most fabulous piano miniatures ever written, but the orchestrated versions are surprisingly effective, in particular the striking "Klokkeklang" (bell-ringing) where Grieg's forward-looking harmonies (very impressionistic) make an even more stirring impact in orchestral garb (in fact, Järvi restores the bell-ringing effects that Grieg removed from the final versions, which is clearly the right choice). The problem is that the performances are a little too inflexible and a little too short on atmosphere, apart from Klokkeklang which is splendidly done - there is definitely more color and nuances in mood in these pieces than Järvi manages to capture, and more ferocity (Trolltog) or otherworldly, dreamlike beauty (Nocturne).

The powerful symphonic dances and the marvelously inventive Norwegian Dances are very well done. Here the playing is not only sharp and energetic, but splendidly phrased and much more nuanced in terms of colors (without compromising the melodic lines). This is rhythmically fresh and captivating playing of enthralling music, although I could imagine some more savagery and urgency, especially in the powerful fourth symphonic dance. The Gothenborgers respond as splendidly as we have come to expect, apart from a certain rawness to the string sound on occasions. The recording has a wide dynamic range and is relatively clear, but it is recorded at a too low level and it sometimes sound almost a little unrefined. Nonetheless, this is overall a safe if not perfect choice for this superb music; the Lyric Suite must be heard for its inclusion of Klokkeklang, although the overall performances in these pieces are not as convincing as in the remainder.

Grieg rarities... 27 Feb. 2006
By vmzfla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Edvard Grieg was generally considered a miniaturist with the majority of his output being for piano his own instrument. This

DG disc compiles most of his meager orchestral offering(other than the celebrated "Piano Concerto"). The "Symphonic Dances" is his most substantial orchestral work. It follows the symphonic 4 movement format. All Greig's dances consist of nationalistic Norwegian folk melodies. The source is the same for the "Norwegian Dances" though orchestrated by the Czech violinist Hans Sitt. These were originally piano duets also done in the 4 movement format. Grieg himself orchestrated "Shepherd Boy" the 1st. mov of the "Lyric Suite" and the remaining four movements were done by Hungarian cond. Anton Seidl. Seidl was a champion of promoting Wagner in the U.S. Without Grieg's approval he attached "Bell Ringing" as the 5th. movement years after the composer's death. Preserving Grieg's most inovative transcription. If one enjoys the dances of Brahms and Dvorak, this light music should not fail to please. The 1986 DDD recording is warm and spacious, but lacks the last degree of detail. It can be obtained for a modest price.
