Edvard Hagerup Grieg  (1843-1907)
Last updated: 13.10.17
According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Edvard Hagerup Grieg was a Norwegian composer whose Scottish great-grandfather's name was Greig; also pianist, particularly as accompanist to his wife (and cousin) Nina, who sang his songs. Encouraged by Ole Bull, went to study in Leipzig; later, pupil of Gade in Copenhagen. Became "nationalist" in music. At Ibsen's request, wrote music for "Pier Gynt". Wrote no symphony, no opera, but works include piano concerto "Holburg Suite" for strings, music to Bjornson's "Sigurd Jorsalfar"; choral works; "Bergliot" (text by Bjornson) for reciter and orchestra; 3 violin sonatas, many songs and piano works, various Norwegian folk-music arrangements. Had Norwegian government pension. Often visited Britain; Hon.D.Mus., Cambridge, 1894.
