Norwegian Composer
Edvard Grieg

Grieg was born in Bergen in 1843 and died there as well in 1907. He was a Norwegian composer, pianist and conductor. He began his studies playing the piano with his mother, before continuing his musical education at the Leipzig Conservatory.

In 1867, he married his cousin Nina Hagerup, a soprano who inspired and interpreted many of his songs. Grieg had many famous friends, including Percy Grainger and Frederick Delius, and admirers such as Liszt. He was also well liked and respected internationally.

Some of Grieg’s more famous works include Peer Gynt (1888), his Piano Concerto, Opus 16 (1868) and his Holberg Suite, Opus 40 (1884).

An Amazing Grieg Fact

Grieg received honorary doctorates from both Oxford (1906) and Cambridge (1894). Don’t we all wish we had that on our resumes!
