Notes & Reviews:

Grieg goes jazz. Three highly individual interpretations of the same masterpiece show what endless artistic possibilities are hidden in music we think we know so well. Christian Ihle Hadland's reading of Grieg's original piano version of the Holberg leans toward the intimate. Chamber orchestra 1B1 offers their rendering of the string version. And taking it all a step further, 1B1 teamed up with composer/pianist Erlend Skomsvoll, internationally acclaimed for his work with Chick Corea, for a version of the work involving a classical orchestra improvising together with a jazz musician.
