Edvard Grieg Kor, choir in residence at Troldhaugen, is naturally closely associated with the composer, and has his entire choral producti- on in its repertoire. At the concert in Ullensvang the choir performs works by Norway’s foremost national romantic composer in quintessential Norwegian surroundings. The concert includes excerpts from Suite from the time of Holberg, one of Grieg’s best-known works, in an arrangement written specially for the choir by Jonathan Rathbone, musical director of the Swingle Singers for over a decade. They also perform Jeg elsker dig! (I love but Thee!), Grieg’s musical setting of Hans Christian Andersen’s poem from 1864. Composed when Grieg was 21, the work triggered an international craving for love at the time. Since then over 300 recordings of the piece have been made by great artists ranging from Frank Sinatra to Kirsten Flagstad. 068 EDVARD GRIEG (1843–1907) Arr.: Paul Robinson (1970–) Good Morning, op. 21:2 Words: Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson Two Brown Eyes, op. 5:1 Words: Hans Christian Andersen A Swan, op. 25:2 Words: Henrik Ibsen The Time of Roses, op. 48:5 Words: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe EDVARD GRIEG Arr.: David Hansford (1985–) Last Spring, op. 33:2 Words: Aasmund Olavsson Vinje ‘In the Hall of the Dancing King’ EDVARD GRIEG Arr.: Jonathan Rathbone (1957–) I Love but Thee!, op. 5:3 Words: Hans Christian Andersen Moonlit Forest, op. 18:1 Words: Hans Christian Andersen Solveig’s Song, op. 55:4 Words: Henrik Ibsen Arr.: Paul Robinson I Went to Sleep so Late Norwegian Folk Song AGATHE BACKER-GRØNDAHL (1847–1907) Arr.: Paul Robinson Calm Is the Evening Words: Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson EDVARD GRIEG from Suite fra Holbergs tid, op. 40 Arr.: Jonathan Rathbone 1.
