This week on ‘A Little Night Music’ Kathleen Kajioka takes a closer looks at Edvard Grieg.
He was the pride of Norway, and the first Scandinavian composer to win broad recognition beyond his homeland. He lived most of his life with a collapsed lung – but he filled his music with the breath of his homeland. From his Peer Gynt Suite to his mammoth A major piano concerto, he has become synonymous with Norwegian national identity.
