A LA CARTE #6- Grieg à la carte


We are repurposing the music from a Vinyl's Revenge post of 28 June 2016 as a new montage in our ongoing A la Carte series on For Your Listening Pleasure

The following notes are an update. 

The original post, featuring stage music by Grieg, is being “mashed up” into a new programme by adding more stage music by the Norwegian. This A La Carte montage extends our old vinyl share of Vaclav Neumann conducting excerpts Peer Gynt with a rare complete recording of the incidental music from Sigurd Jorsalfar.

Sigurd Jorsalfar is a play by Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson celebrating King Sigurd I of Norway. Published as his Op. 22, his incidental music for the play was first performed in Christiania on 10 April 1872. The full work consists of nine parts; five are purely orchestral, and four are scored for tenor or baritone, male chorus, and orchestra.

Happy Listeing!
