Grieg: Piano Concerto, Holberg Suite, Lyric Suite / Davidovich, Schwarz, Seattle Symphony
Edvard Grieg died over 100 years ago, but his music still retains a timeless magic and freshness. The Holberg Suite is based on the form of a French baroque dance suite, in this case one with unforgettable melodic charm. The Piano Concerto is deservedly popular, combining established Germanic structure with a wealth of warmly expressive romantic character and Norwegian dance rhythms. Grieg’s Lyric Suite reflects Norwegian peasant life and nature, each movement representing a single mood, and the composer’s remarkable skill in orchestration.
