Edvard Grieg
Recommended Recordings



Grieg: Peer Gynt
(Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra & Chorus; Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor)
A warm and human representation of Peer Gynt, from full chorus to soprano solos.

Grieg: Violin Sonatas
(Pierre Amoyal, violin; Frederic Chiu, piano)
Edvard Grieg's violin sonatas may be lesser known than some of his masterpieces (namely, "Peer Gynt"), but they still boast a folksy charm and rhapsodic intensity. Here, Pierre Amoyal and Frederic Chiu shed light on these lyrical and melodic chamber music pieces with spontaneous, inspired playing.

The Best of Grieg
(Stephen Kovacevich, Quintin Ballardie, et al; English Chamber Orchestra, B. B. C. Symphony Orchestra, et al; Raymond Leppard and Sir Colin Davis, conducting)
