Notes & Reviews:

Grieg was a master of the miniature, an aspect of his genius shown in this collection of works for string orchestra. The popular 'Holberg Suite' translates a set of baroque dances into contemporary idiom. The other works are derived by the composer from earlier songs or piano pieces, of which Grieg wrote a very large number. Established in 1998, the internationally renowned Oslo Camerata has its own concert series at the Old Masonic Lodge in Oslo, which dates from Grieg's time.
