Neeme Järvi conducts Grieg’s “Peer Gynt” Suites

They are the epitome of Scandinavian music: Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt suites, whose echoes of Norwegian folk music radiate an unmistakably Scandinavian flavour. But when it comes to style and form, the composer remained, in his own words “a German Romantic". Here, overtures by Brahms and Weber show just how much Grieg’s music resembles German music. The conductor, Neeme Järvi, is one of the most well-known exponents of the Nordic repertoire.
