 Engeset, Bjarte


Grieg’s incidental music for Ibsen’s play Peer Gynt (1874-5) won immediate success and ranks among his most enduringly popular compositions, its huge range of orchestral tone-colours and creative use of space captured on this recording by placing actors, chorus, and folk musicians both onstage and behind the scenes. Foran Sydens Kloster, composed in 1871 as an interlude for Bjørnson’s heroic play Arnljot Gelline, and Bergliot, a monodrama written in the same year and orchestrated in 1875, reveal Grieg as a master composer of dramatic and lyrical stage music.

"This first ever bargain release of all Grieg’s music for Ibsen’s harrowing drama of self-discovery must tempt a wider audience to hear what is, alongside Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream and Bizet’s L ’Arlésienne, one of the 19th-century’s finest theatre scores—and undoubtedly the composer’s masterpiece in large-scale form... Engeset and his Swedish players and Norwegian actors and singers provide the most sensible mix of spoken word and music yet arrived at for home listening and have more fun with this music in the studio than anyone since Masur or Beecham..."

Mike Ashman - Gramophone magazine - March 2009


"...highly recommendable..."

Göran Forsling - MusicWeb-International.com - February 2009


"Ibsen’s Peer Gynt was written in 1867 as a verse play, conceived for the imagination rather than the theatre. Its original staging had around 90 minutes of music by Grieg, more integral than incidental to the drama if this rich, captivating recording is any measure. The trolls, milkmaids and picturesque scene-shifts are brought to life by excellent Norwegian-speaking actors; and Engeset and his energetic Malmö forces reach deep beneath the surface of Grieg’s score to expose its innate drama and uplifting spiritual grace..."  *****
