Grieg performed in Andover

Over 100 years after his death, the music of Edvard Grieg still travels across the world and this time lands at a concert in Andover, Hampshire.

Works by Edvard Grieg, as well as compositions by Sibelius, Nielsen and Borodin, will be performed by the Andover Choral Society, a voluntary amateur choral group of about 75 persons, which performs two major works each year and on occasion other concerts, usually in support of local good causes.

Edvard Grieg (15 June 1843 – 4 September 1907) was a Norwegian composer and pianist who composed in the Romantic period. He is best known for his Piano Concerto in A minor, for his incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's play Peer Gynt (which includes Morning Mood and In the Hall of the Mountain King), and for his collection of piano miniatures Lyric Pieces.
