Reflecting Norway: Grieg's Folk Songs and Dances
The Bergen Woodwind Quartet.
Every country has its token composer: Finland has Sibelius, Poland has Chopin, the U.S. has Copland, and Norway has Edvard Grieg. Grieg cultivated a love of his country's folk idioms, and some of his best works are reflections of his nationalism. The Bergen Woodwind Quintet plays arrangements of five of Grieg's Folk Songs and Dances, Op. 17.
