Notes & Reviews:

This SACD is the second volume in Audite's five-part recording series of conductor Edvard Grieg's complete symphonic works with Eivind Aadland and the WDR Sinfonieorchester. These works for string orchestra - a genre which Grieg mastered like no other - are chiefly arrangements of songs and piano pieces. Audite's complete edition includes Grieg's symphonic works as well as two suites from his incidental music, compiled by the composer himself specifically for concert use.

"These works spring to life through Audite's rich, vibrant sound... Aadland's upbringing surrounded by Grieg's music is obvious in the natural, almost effortless way that he guides the orchestra, drawing out the elegant, vocal qualities of the compositions while simultaneously highlighting the rhythms and harmonies that characterize Grieg's folk popularity." -All Music Guide
