Grieg's Best Duets - One Piano, Four Hands

Grieg's Best Duets - One Piano, Four Hands


The Last Spring, Op. 34, No. 2 The Last Spring is one of Two Elegiac Melodies that Grieg arranged for solo piano as well as for string orchestra. Grieg made these four-hand settings with beautiful economy of means. The distribution of the thematic and harmonic material achieves refined and expressive effects. Norwegian Dance, Op. 35, No. 2 This Norwegian Dance is among Grieg's best and most characteristic piano duets. It is based on an Old Norwegian mountain melody. As is usual with Grieg, he has treated this folk tune in a uniquely personal way, making it his own while retaining its uniquely Norwegian flavor.
