As one of the three household names of Nordic music and Scandinavia's most "popular" composer, Grieg is traditional BIS territory. We have now started an exciting undertaking: to record all of Grieg's orchestral music. This will be the first complete Grieg series made by a Norwegian orchestra, and what could be a more natural choice than letting the leading Norwegian conductor of his generation, Ole Kristian Ruud and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Grieg’s “own” orchestra, do the honours. (Grieg’s grandfather was employed as leader of the orchestra in 1770 and 110 years later the composer was its musical director. Even now Grieg’s influence is great, as he left a great deal of money to a foundation supporting the orchestra.)
The programme on this first disc in the cycle includes both old favourites – the piano concerto – and less known works. (The Symphony was actually left unperformed for more than 100 years, from 1867 to 1980.) Recorded with the new DSD (Direct Stream Digital) technology, this hybrid disc offers the option of surround sound as well as the usual stereo – a first for this the most recorded (?) of all piano concertos.
