Grieg, Edvard – Holberg Suite, Op. 40 for 10-part Brass Choir.
The Holberg Suite by Edvard Grieg was originally written for the Piano and later arranged for string orchestra.
The composition is a suite of five movements written in 1884, based on 18th century dance forms and dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian playwright Ludvig Holberg. It is a charming example of neo-classicism, attempting to echo the music from Holberg's era of the 17th century.
James Haynor has once again done a splendid job of scoring a major new work for Brass ensemble.
The work is appropriate for advanced musicians and about 15 minutes in length.
