Alfvén - Swedish Rhapsody No.1, ‘Midsommarvaka’

Grieg - Peer Gynt Suite: selection
Joseph Moog, piano
This inspirational concert, perfect for winter, celebrates the patriotic music written by three Scandinavian composers. Two of the most famous pieces by Norwegian Edvard Grieg feature: his musical tableaux for the quintessentially Scandinavian play, Peer Gynt; and his stunning Piano Concerto, with its beautiful central Adagio, which will be performed by Grammy-nominated pianist Joseph Moog. Swedish composer Hugo Alfvén contributes his cheerful and light-hearted Midsummer Vigil, a symphonic rhapsody that gets right to the heart of his homeland’s folk music, whilst Finnish composer Jean Sibelius is represented by his haunting and melancholy Valse triste and his stirring tribute to his homeland, Finlandia.
