"In his music ... there is something close, dear to us, that immediately finds a warm, compassionate response in our hearts ..."
You can hear the full confirmation of these words at the address of Edward Grieg at the concert of the Kyiv Chamber Orchestra within the framework of the project of violinist Vadim Borisov.
The mono-program from the works of one composer will introduce the listener to the little-known melodies of the author, and will once again enjoy the extremely popular "hits" of classical music. You can hardly meet a person who has never heard the gentle sounds of the play "Morning" or the insidious move of the mysterious inhabitants of the Mountain King's Cave from the suite "Per Gynt". These works have long won the incredible popularity and love of the public. And movie directors often turn to these masterpieces, including them in their paintings.
The musicians, playing the music of Grieg, will create an atmosphere of unspeakable beauty of the Norwegian nature - that grand and wide, then gray and inconspicuous, but always charming to the inhabitants of the north. "I drew rich treasures in the folk tunes of my homeland, and tried to make national art from this treasure," said Edward Grieg himself.
“How much warmth and passion in his singing phrases…. it's no wonder Grieg loves everyone that he's popular everywhere! .. "
