Program Notes

Edvard Grieg was one of the most important figures during Norway's nationalistic romantic period, and his music well conveys the essence of this beautiful Scandinavian country. The present work for concert band is from Two Elegiac Melodies for String Orchestra and retains all the beauty and solemnity of the original. Evoke the peaceful atmosphere of Grieg's native land with this beautiful, haunting work.
