Grieg’s incidental music for Ibsen’s play Peer Gynt (1874-5) won immediate success and ranks among his most enduringly popular compositions, its huge range of orchestral tone-colours and creative use of space captured on this recording by placing actors, chorus, and folk musicians both onstage and behind the scenes.

Foran Sydens Kloster, composed in 1871 as an interlude for Bjørnson’s heroic play Arnljot Gelline, and Bergliot, a monodrama written in the same year and orchestrated in 1875, reveal Grieg as a master composer of dramatic and lyrical stage music.

This recording includes authentic folk musician recordings as well as the original narration.

Gramophone Magazine

March 2009

“Engeset and his Swedish players and Norwegian actors and singers provide the most sensible mix of spoken word and music yet arrived at for home listening and have more fun with this music in the studio than anyone since Masur or Beecham.”
