Grieg’s Lyrical Pieces

May 20th, 2011 by David Bird · No Comments · Uncategorized

Yes, lyrical. Often too short. I had difficulty really interfacing with most of these pieces. Some with fairly arbitrary harmonic conventions, others too blatantly borrowing from danish and norwegian popular music, perhaps this could function well as wallpaper music in a nice upscale restaurant? Personally there’s not enough material in these to fully grasp my attention as a concert piece.
