Originally published in 2003, Edvard Grieg and his Songs examines the lifetime of Edvard Grieg. His songs were among his most popular and well-known works and both historians and critics have seen in them, Grieg at his most sophisticated and innovative. Important in and of themselves, the songs also illuminate critical aspects of his other works such as his musical impressionism, his use of folk music as a source of inspiration, and his novel approach towards harmony. Fifty of Grieg’s most important songs form the focus of this book. Each song is discussed individually and within the wider context of the composer’s output. The book provides a translation of the lyrics, and analysis of the poem and a description of the song’s form, melody, tessitura, harmony, rhythm and accompaniment, together with suggestions for interpretation. In addition to this, the book gives a brief biography of Grieg, with a chapter that analyses his approach to song writing.

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.

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.
