GRIEG, E.: Orchestral Works (Complete) (Engeset) (8-CD Boxed Set)

This boxed set of Grieg’s complete orchestral works is a celebration of the composer’s rich and multifaceted aesthetic. Grieg was an idealistic humanist whose music and writings underlined a harmony between humans and nature. The sense of nostalgia and ‘postcard lyricism’ often associated with him belies the wild energy also present in his music—its primeval force, pessimistic emotions and tempestuous Romanticism. Thanks to Bjarte Engeset’s carefully researched and widely admired performances, Grieg’s complex musical universe can here be appreciated in full.
