"The time has come to step forward with a work which is notable in both form and content." These were the words of Edvard Grieg's publisher, reminding the composer of the major genres of the time: symphony, oratorio, opera. But Grieg did not feel the need to write another symphony and another opera in the Middle European style. He wanted to give Norway its unique voice within European concert repertoire. And he did that with songs and piano pieces - and particularly with his symphonic works, released by audite in a five-part complete recording with Eivind Aadland and the WDR Symphony Orchestra.

Eivind Aadland's roots in the tradition of Norwegian folk music audibly influence his interpretations. He comes from a family where Norwegian folk music played an important role, and even as a child he came into intensive contact with Grieg's music. Ideal prerequisites therefore to rediscover Grieg's symphonic works against the background of this tradition. Grieg's connections with Germany stretch from his studies in Leipzig to his numerous concert performances in that country. Added to that is the extraordinary circulation of his works in Germany. This recording with the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne therefore also represents on several levels a German-Norwegian synthesis which had already been in existence during Grieg's lifetime.

Our LP Edvard Grieg: Symphonic Works Vol. II comprises the second Peer Gynt Suite, Op. 55, the Funeral March EG 107, the suite From Holberg's Time, Op. 40, and Klokkeklang, Op. 54 No 6. Release date is November 2014.

Griegs Peer Gynt Suite ist nun wieder als Schallplatte zu haben, dazu gibt es Download-Codes

Nichts geht aber darüber, die Diamantnadel des Plattenspielers in die Rille zu senken und den Streichern zu lauschen, wie sie den Sonnenaufgang beschwören. So wie man die Sonne nicht vorspulen oder um einen Track hüpfen lassen kann, so hört man hier auch einfach zu, wie sich die Musik entfaltet. Das ist gut auch fürs Gemüt.Mehr lesen
