Edvard Grieg: What Price Immortality?
Renowned Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg was a restless, complex character forever on the move, constantly searching for peace, happiness and, above all, perfection. In a series of flashbacks, Grieg as an older man returns home and summons up the essential stuff of his life--relationships, school, loneliness, death and the achievement of fame. Pianist Staffan Scheja takes the role of Grieg in this fully dramatized film about his life. The only narrative is voice-over monologues by Grieg, spoken in the English version by the acclaimed classical actor Derek Jacobi.
