From Holberg's Time Op. 40 by : Edvard Grieg : Einar Steen-Nokleberg; Ernst Herttrich
In 1884 Grieg composed a suite in Baroque style on the occasion of the 200th birthday of the poet Ludvig Holberg; who was very well-known in Norway. Taking inspiration from Holberg's time there are dances and forms from Baroque music here - Präludium; Sarabande; Gavotte; Air and Rigaudon. But they are combined with the melodic and harmonic language of the 19th century; and with Grieg's characteristic compositional style. In this way; the music achieves the charming mix that is the reason for its popularity. Even though the string orchestra version is better known today; Grieg first wrote the work for piano. The fingering prepared for this Urtext edition helps to open up the dense and often polyphonic piano-writing.
