The event will be a sweeping musical portrait of Edvard Grieg’s famous compositions, with performances by leading Norwegian orchestras and soloists from today’s music scene. All of the music will be performed live! Most of the concerts will take place in Bergen. The great majority of the works – the piano pieces, the songs and chamber music – will be performed at Grieg's home and museum at Troldhaugen. The orchestra pieces will be performed in Grieghallen and Store Studio by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra respectively.
