Grieg’s Lyric Pieces and Songs

May 20th, 2011 by Adam Bernstein · No Comments · Uncategorized

Grieg’s work is always a little strange to me- he seems so refined in the small details and yet very clunky and old-fashioned in the bigger picture. ¬†I enjoy the key modulations he uses and think they’re very original, but the rhythms he employs are rarely particularly noteworthy. ¬†However, there is a definite beauty in the simplicity of his work, and as I listen to Sviatoslav Richter play Op. 43, No. 6 “To Spring” I can’t help but smile.
