The Norwegian composer Grieg was the last representative of 19th century nationalistic Romanticism. His vivacious Wedding Day at Troldhaugen is a recollection of his 25th wedding anniversary. Filled with passionate melodies and harmonic vitality, Grieg’s only piano concerto is among the most popular in the repertory. The early-20th century Finnish composer, Sibelius, forged an independent path for himself with his strong, heroic Symphony No. 2. This work demonstrates great boldness and individuality yet is also infused with a dark, brooding and characteristically Nordic quality.
