Notes & Reviews:

Grieg's music, while based on the German tradition, magically captures the spirit and grandeur of his native Norway. Peer Gynt includes two perennial favorites, "Morning Mood", which conjures images of the sun rising over fjords, and the frenetic "In the Hall of Mountain King". His popular Piano Concerto is a perfect blend of drama and lyricism.
