Book Summary

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) was a remarkably prolific correspondent -- over 3,000 letters from his hand have been published either in the original languages or in translation -- but his extant writings in other genres are limited to the items contained in this present volume. They include his diaries from 1865-66 and 1905-07, autobiographical sketches, articles on other composers whom he admired, and essays on a variety of topics that engaged his interest at one time or another during his career. The texts of a handful of short speeches are also known to us, primarily through contemporary newspaper accounts. All are presented in English translation here. Readers of Grieg's letters (Edvard Grieg: Letters to Colleagues and Friends) know that the great composer was a writer of considerable skill, and the items contained in these pages provide further evidence of that fact. With the publication of this book, all of Grieg's most important 'literary' works -- letters, diaries, articles and speeches -- are now available in English translation.
