Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This complete recording by audite includes Grieg's symphonic works as well as orchestral works from his incidental music, compiled by the composer himself. Eivind Aadland was chief conductor and artistic director of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra from 2003 until 2010 and has also worked with many other international orchestras.

"Aadland is a native of Grieg's Bergen, steeped through his family in the Norwegian folk-music tradition...To the WDR players he has communicated a lightness of touch and a fine Grieg balance in which the winds sing out almost like concertante soloists...With recording matching the scale of the music-making, Aadland's new cycle...has hit the ground running." -Gramophone

"[This disc] should really be heard not only by all admirers of this composer but also by his detractors...in terms of tempos and of internal orchestral balance, Aadland places this music on altogether a higher plane than it usually occupies, and obtains really fine playing from the West German Radio Symphony Orchestra of Cologne. This is notable music-making." -International Record Review
