Champagne, Music, & Peer Gynt Sweets - Fundraiser for EGSMN Piano Competition

Champagne, Music, & Peer Gynt Sweets - Fundraiser for EGSMN Piano Competition

The annual fundraiser for EGSMN. This year’s concert theme Grieg’s Favorite Grieg Songs - Sung in English! Proceeds will go toward Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota’s 2019 Piano Competition celebrating young performers of Grieg and other Nordic composers.

Edvard Grieg wrote a total of 179 songs during his career. We know from the printed programs prepared for these concerts, most of which were preserved by Grieg himself, that he programmed some of his songs over and over again—hence, “Grieg’s favorite Grieg songs.” In 1988, the Edvard Grieg Committee – a group of musicologists from Norway and Denmark – commissioned EGSMN Board Member & reknowned Grieg scholar, William Halverson to create new English versions of most of Grieg’s song texts. The program on January 20 will use these English versions.

Performances by soprano Maria Jette, baritone Alan Dunbar, and pianist Sonja Thompson.
