In association with the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Lithuania and the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra Club.

To mark the death centennial of the great Norwegian classic, Edvard Grieg (15 June 1843 – 4 September 1907), his most popular work, written as incidental music for Henrik Ibsen’s drama Peer Gynt, is put on stage at the National Philharmonic Hall.

The terse writing and at the same time picturesque imagery, graceful form and subtle yet sparing orchestration make for the best of his orchestral style. In his music for Peer Gynt, Grieg attempted to convey tender lyricism, fantastical imagery and folk scenes rather than philosophical and satirical moments of Ibsen’s drama.

Steeped in the Norwegian folklore, Grieg’s charming and tuneful music enjoys worldwide popularity among the wide audiences.
