Edvard Hagerup Grieg

Edvard Hagerup Grieg (1843-1907)


Edvard Grieg is perhaps the most famous of all Norwegian composers, and one of the best-known from Scandinavia as a whole. Writing at a time of increasing nationalism throughout Europe, like many of his contemporaries (Sibelius, Smetana and others) he sought to establish a national musical style that would be characteristic of the nation, rather than influenced by the major regional powers (in Grieg's case Denmark and Sweden).
