EDVARD HAGER GRIEG

(b. Bergen, Norway, June 15, 1843 � d. there, Sept. 4, 1907)

Edvard Grieg was an intensely patriotic man, a musical genius with a love of wild Nature. He disliked school but nevertheless made commendable progress in his musical studies, but it was one day when he was about twelve that he took one of his first compositions to school to show a friend when his form master seized the manuscript, got hold of Edvard by the hair and admonished him for bringing such rubbish to school. Many years later when he first met the head of the Scandinavian school of composers Niels W. Gade in Copenhagen, he was reminded of this school incident, when Gade asked Grieg if he had any compositions to show, to which Grieg replied that he had nothing of importance. The frustrated Gade immediately retorted: � Very well then, go home and write a symphony�

But Grieg never wrote a symphony; his reputation at this time and through most of his life was that of a miniaturist resting on the piano music and songs, however this does not imply that he was ineffectual in handling larger canvases, and developing musical ideas in paragraphs rather than sentences as the G major Violin Sonata op.13 or the A minor Piano Concerto op.16 can, and do testify to. His songs, which number no fewer than one hundred and fifty, are the pinnacles of his musical achievement, and he patterned these original melodies after the folksongs of his beloved Norway hardly ever quoting them directly only �Solveig�s Song� uses a borrowed melody.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
