Holberg Variations


The Holberg Suite occupies a unique position in Grieg's output and an unusual place in Norwegian music history. Holberg Variations are three very different approaches to this small piece of Norway. The ensemble 1B1 have teamed up with jazz musician and composer Erlend Skomsvoll and Norway's most exciting pianist Christian Ihle Hadland, in a tribute to Edvard Grieg. The album was launched with a concert 13. August at the Stavanger International Chamber Music Festival. Read more at the Simax Classics webpage HERE
