Edvard Grieg's Lyric Pieces
Edvard Grieg (1843 – 1907) was a Norwegian composer and pianist, best known for his Piano Concerto, his Incidental Music to the play Peer Gynt, and his collection of sixty-six Lyric Pieces for piano, composed between 1867 and 1901. Similar in stature to Chopin’s Nocturnes and Debussy’s Preludes, the collection includes several of his best known pieces, such as Wedding Day At Troldhaugen (Bryllupsdag på Troldhaugen), To Spring (Til våren), March of the Trolls (Trolltog), and Butterfly (Sommerfugl). In his Lyric Pieces a distinct Norwegian profile is blended into a romantic-poetic style that is universal in its message. Among the Lyric Pieces one finds a variety of intimate moods as well as larger, virtuoso works. In many pieces, Grieg's harmonies are quite novel and anticipate Debussy and Ravel.
