Grieg performed at the BBC Proms

 Type:Culture, Music
 Location:England, London

Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg will be represented by his lyrical 'Holberg Suite' at a concert during BBC Proms performed by the Scottish Ensemble.

17/07/2007 :: A selection of string classics, including Elgar's Serenade, whose broad, melodic second movement is every bit as affecting as the composer's Cello Concerto or Enigma Variations. There are more composer anniversary celebrations, with Grieg represented by his lyrical Holberg Suite, while the Music for Strings by Elizabeth Maconchy (a pupil of Vaughan Williams, born 100 years ago) returns to the Proms for the first time since its world premiere in 1983. Finzi's delightful Clarinet Concerto is performed by one of Britain's leading exponents.
