    Default Forgotten Melodies - Episode Five



    Episode Five of The Forgotten Melodies Podcast is now online at www.forgottenmelodiespodcast.com.

    This week, to mark the 100th anniversary of his death in 1907, Danny focuses exclusively on the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg.

    Born in Bergen to a musical family, Edvard Hagerup Grieg (1843-1907) studied piano at the Leipzig conservatory and spent a number of years living in Denmark.

    He is best known for his orchestral suite Peer Gynt and his Piano Concerto in A minor, although he wrote a number of lesser-known works, many of them for solo piano.

    His violin sonatas are top-notch. Don't miss them.

    Talking of Grieg's V&P sonatas, the no.3 is a gorgeous one. My favourite in all three movements.

    Have you ever heard his Symphony in C minor?
    ''Oh, the String Quartet - oh, the Divine Scratching!''
