Grieg: Peer Gynt Suites and Holberg Suite & Sibelius: Valse Triste

Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.

Editors’ Notes

When Edvard Grieg was invited to compose incidental music for the fairytale play Peer Gynt by his eminent compatriot Henrik Ibsen, it stimulated the Norwegian composer's growing nationalistic style. Filled with hummable tunes such as "Morning Mood" and "In the Hall of the Mountain King," these suites have joined that rare company of concert pieces known and loved by almost everyone. The distinguished Herbert Von Karajan gives a grippingly dramatic reading here, with the awe-inspiring Berlin Philharmonic captured in spacious sound. In particular, the sumptuous Berlin strings in the wonderful Holberg Suite evoke the crisp air of the Scandinavian landscape.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic, as usual

I love most of what the Berliner produces, and this is part of that "most" category. There is great interpretation done by Karajan, and the orchestra is responsive. I do reccomend recordings of deeper music by the Berliner, though. While this is an essential to any classical library, it is only good for its melodies. If you are interested in prime Karajan, I reccomend Shostakovich 10 with the Berliner Philharmoniker. iTunes has a great selection of recordings with the aforementioned orchestra, so explore it!

Grieg is Great

Very well done. The Berliner Philharmoniker is in great form for this classic piece of classical music ;-)

For calm moments!

I heard this opus played live in 2005, what a great concert.
