In anticipation of the 150th anniversary of Grieg's birth, this book traces Grieg's development from his early German romantic style, through his period of pronounced nationalism toward a more individual idiom in which he sought to fuse nationalism and universality into a genuine style of his own. The compositions are treated chronologically and stylistic analyses form the basic evaluations. The book focuses on characteristic stylistic traits as well as aspects of rhythm and harmony. The analysis of each single movement is followed by a brief synopsis of the formal construction of each composition.

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.

"Wilfrid Mellers ranks among the most eminent of contemporary British writers and lecturers on music. The range of his interest is exceptionally wide, encompassing music from the renaissance to the present day, from Monteverdi to Minimalism, not excluding jazz and many different forms of popular music, as well as music from non-western cultures." "That breadth of vision is nowhere more apparent than in his occasional writings. In these necessarily concentrated and closely focused pieces we find the essence of his thinking about music, its nature and its meaning. Written in the first instance for the general reader, they also offer insights that should be of importance to music students in schools, colleges, and universities." "Wilfrid Mellers has won international acclaim, over many years, with books such as Man and His Music, Music in a New Found Land, Bach and the Dance of God, Caliban Reborn, and Vaughan Williams and the Vision of Albion. Not surprisingly, since he is also a notably original composer, he is interested primarily in what music is for, and how composers' intentions are realised and made manifest."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

In 1874 Henrik Ibsen invited Edvard Grieg to compose incidental music for a staged version of his Norwegian verse drama "Peer Gynt. "The result of this collaboration between Norway's greatest dramatist and its greatest composer was a set of pieces that have become among the best known and most loved of the late nineteenth century. Grieg's complete incidental score to "Peer Gynt" comprises 22 pieces: it is the two orchestral suites arranged from eight of these pieces that have become staples of the repertoire, with innumerable performances and dozens of recordings. This inexpensive, authoritative edition contains both suites complete, including such concert-hall favorites as "Morning Mood," "Anitra's Dance," and "In the Hall of the Mountain King." Musicians and music lovers will appreciate having these favorite scores in one handy volume, and students and scholars will want to have them on hand for the study of Grieg's melodic and harmonic style and orchestration, as well as for their influence on a wide range of composers, from Debussy to Sibelius.
