Grieg: String Quartets / Chilingirian Quartet    Hyperion

One of my favourite composers! I can't think of a single piece of music I haven't enjoyed by Edvard Grieg! Indeed his incidental music for Peer Gynt is one of my favourite pieces of music ever and I have multiple recordings. I like his Piano Concerto,but I tend to agree that he was at his best when his imagination was unrestricted by such convention's of form. That said,he still came up with one of the greatest,most popular & tuneful concertos ever written. So pretty good going,when you think about it?!! And it got to appear on the Morecambe and Wise show!

I do so agree with you. Contrary to what some would have us believe, Grieg was no petit-maître. For one thing, he was a superb melodist.
