The haunting beauty of Norway is conveyed in the popular melodies of its most famous composer, Edvard Grieg. This volume of the Naxos Musical Journey brings us breathtaking images of Norway set to Grieg's music, including his famed Peer Gynt Suites. From magnificent lakes, mountains and fjords to the gleaming modern beauty of Oslo; take a trip along the actual Peer Gynt Road as dramatised in Ibsen's Peer Gynt or delight in traditional Norwegian folk dances; visit a maritime museum and see the remains of a Viking warship or thrill to the mythology of the Trolls. This is the culture and spirit that inspired Grieg - places and images as unforgettable as the music itself.
