Product Description

Product Description

This boxed set of Grieg's complete orchestral works is a celebration of the composer's rich and multi-faceted aesthetic. Grieg was an idealistic humanist whose music and writings underlined a harmony between humans and nature. The sense of nostalgia and 'postcard lyricism' often associated with him belies the wild energy also present in his music its primeval force, pessimistic emotions and tempestuous Romanticism. Thanks to Bjarte Engeset's carefully researched and widely admired performances, Grieg's complex musical universe can here be appreciated in full.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive set of less familiar Grieg works. 24 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Inexpensive way of collecting less familiar Grieg Orchestral works. For eight CDs with a 100 page booklet this set is very good value. Some unusual pieces with very good vocal accompaniment. Doubtless versions with better performers can be obtained, but the set represents an inexpensive way of hearing these works.

By JRJoseph - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For you Grieg fans out there, this is a great bargain. All the familiar melodies are here plus some works very rarely heard. If you don't like chamber music or lieder, you will be happy to hear there isn't any. What you do get are eight CDs with very good sound and performances of a composer most people like. They even used his melodies in the Broadway show "Song of Norway" which means to me that most of his music is accessible for almost everybody. Happy listening.
