Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Grieg's beautiful works for string orchestra often owe their origin to poetic inspiration or to mountain vistas. Some were based on piano originals, including the Holberg Suite, a masterpiece of invention. All of these pieces show Grieg's assimilation of Norwegian folk culture and his lyrical mastery, through which he sought to 'give expression to the hidden harmonies in our folk melodies'. Volume 4 in this series (8.570236) was described as containing 'performances as fine as any in the catalogue. These are gorgeous, perfectly paced and thrillingly recorded'. (
