Grieg Peer Gynt (incidental music)

The opening concert of three featuring Esa-Pekka Salonen and star pianist Lang Lang has a performance of Grieg’s Piano Concerto, a work that marked the start of a glittering career and put Norway on the musical map. The second half of this concert features a semi-staging of Grieg's incidental music for Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, famous for its ‘Morning’ and ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ scenes.

This concert is part of the Salonen/Lang Lang Series series
