Biography

Edvard Grieg, a Norwegian in Leipzig

Edvard Grieg, an undisputed master of short pieces, was born into a cultured Norwegian family. His parents encouraged him to leave his homeland for Germany at the early age of fifteen to complete his education. He studied with Moscheles and Reinecke in Leipzig where he discovered the German Romantics and in particularly Scumann’s Piano Concerto played by Clara Wieck. In 1863, while travelling through Copenhagen, the composer met Niels Gade who encouraged him to seek out a middle road between Romanticism and Nationalism.
