Edvard Hagerup Grieg
(1843–1907), the most famous Norwegian composer, excelled in creating short
piano pieces, and this was a suite of some of them. He wrote it in 1884, and he later orchestrated it for strings. Holberg
was a Norwegian poet and playwright about whom Grieg studied for a commission celebrating Holberg’s 200th anniversay.
The pieces in the suite are I. Prelude
, II. Sarabande
, III. Gavotte
, V. Rigaudon
. The original (unrestored) piano music is at the right.
Richard Ellsasser (1926–1972) was an organ prodigy and performed
on all organs, classical, theatre, large, small, pipe, and electronic. A prolific
recitalist, his repertoire ranged from Bach to twentieth century, transcriptions,
and light popular music. Moderate.
