Notes & Reviews:

Edvard Grieg had some difficulties with great traditional forms like the symphony and sonata but nevertheless occupied himself with them his whole life long. Before retiring to the country solitude of Norway in 1877 to compose his String Quartet in G minor, he wrote, "I must do something for my art. I intend to fight my way through the great forms, cost what it may."
