    One of the very best.

    Any ladies or gentlemen from Norway around here who could help me by giving a simple literal translation (I don't need a poetic one) to this Aasmund Vinje's poem set into music by Grieg in his Op.33 (12 Songs after Vinje)? The language is Nynorsk I suppose. Any help will be appreciated.

    Fyremål

    Vegen vita,
    på villstig venda,
    fram å fara
    og ferdi enda:
    vi mot målet
    må soleis halda,
    elles vil vi
    på vegen falla.

    Enn eit år
    over bratte bakkar,
    haug og hamrar
    og håge slakkar,
    fjell og fjøre
    og fjord som bryter,
    flod som fløymer,
    og foss som tyter,
    må vi vandra
    og vegen fara.

    Måtte makti
    og mergen vara!
    Kom då, snille!
    vi slita saman.
    For den gilde
    er gant og gaman.

    Trygt og trufast
    vår norsk vi tala.
    Med det same
    slags mål vi mala.

    Stor var skammi
    vi skulle bera,
    når vi neitta
    å Norske vera.

    Greg’s Funeral March that is so much more than just sadness. There’s something stirring, emotionally triumphant, and inspiring about it—not a work just about loss. It’s solemn but unexpectedly goes into uplifting major keys.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on the Jarvi complete orchestral works set versus Engeset on Naxos?

    I just ran across the Holberg Suite in a CD shoppe, wasn't familiar with it so I brought it home. It was described as being the equal, musically, of the Peer Gynt Suites.

    After playing through it I thought it very pleasant, but maybe not so memorable on a first listen. Will have to give it a few more spins.

    Can anybody here elaborate on the musical significance of this suite? I know it was written to commemorate the 200th birthday of playwright Ludvig Holberg -- beyond that I know nothing.

    I remember listening to this once, both the cover and the music felt "fantastic"

    Oh yes, Richter's handling of Grieg is excellent. For the Lyric Pieces, Emil Gilels.
