    Well, that is a truth with some modification, Grieg wrote a Cello Sonata that someone arranged and orchestrated... Am I a spoiler or what!

    It is ,unfortunately, a beefed-up version of the Op.36 cello sonata.

    I don't know why he didn't orchestrate more of his music. The second Peer Gynt suite that Grieg himself orchestrated is much better than the stuff he jobbed out.

    I didn't even know he wrote a cello sonata. Not too clued up about Grieg.

    Anyway, I akm still waiting for the discovery of the Mahler guitar concerto, and the Brahms recorder concerto...

    On another subject...I showed a friend "Rage Over a Lost Penny" by Beethoven...they got so mad at it it was unbelievable. They were jittery all day after that. I did tell them you could feel Beethoven's emotions when you listen to his music though...

    I was very heavy into Requiems two years ago when I started really seriously listening to classical music (still like them, just don't listen as much). I do have and like the Saint-Saens myself.

    Yep, and just as authentic as that wonderful Schmidt concerto it's paired with!

    (I love the imitation of Mahler's performance directions, though: "zögernd, wie im Winterschnee".)

    Random discovery: Franz Welser-Möst is a stage name. He added the 'Welser-'.
