Grieg: Complete Symphonic Works, Vol. III – WDR Sinfonieorchester, Eivind Aadland

‘The first two discs in this Complete Symphonic Works series were outstanding. This third is wholly exceptional. The presence of the overture In Autumn and the Old Norwegian Romance with Variations gives the programme a Beechamesque feel. But Aadland and his astonishingly well-integrated German ensemble – by this I mean that they are guided into a natural-sounding Nordic style – need fear nothing by way of competition, not even from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s dream woodwind section. Aadland’s Romance – unlike Beecham’s it is complete and not marginally re-orchestrated – becomes a kind of Norwegian Enigma Variations avant la lettre, mixing a large degree of symphonic seriousness with wit and Griegian nostalgia. The demonstration-class recording showcases a weight and colour of orchestration that puts this Grieg score in the correct but rarely considered position of contemporary to Strauss’s early orchestral masterworks. A piece that (sssh! even on the two Beecham recordings) can sound bloated and occasional, here claims a place alongside, indeed anticipates, the distinguished turn-of-the-century unnamed symphonies of Rachmaninoff, Elgar, and the like.

A similar seriousness but never overblown grandeur informs In Autumn. Aadland has already shown us in this cycle that he is good at correctly scaling miniatures both in joy and in grief. He seconds those achievements here in the characterisation of the Lyric Suite and the Sigurd Jorsalfar music, while the five minutes of ‘Klokkeklang’ (Bell-ringing) become a spooky shadow of the Bøyg’s music in Peer Gynt (eagerly awaited in this series). A compulsively playable record, hugely recommended.’

Mike Ashman, Gramophone, September 2013

As a conductor of great European orchestras, Edvard Grieg produced a high-class collection of his own works, some of which he created by arranging his own solo piano works for orchestra. In Volume 3 of Audite’s complete recording of Grieg’s orchestral works, several such transcriptions show a richness and colouristic range that often surpass the originals.
