Programme:
GriegHolberg Suite
TchaikovskySerenade for Strings


Grieg’s From Holberg’s Time – Suite in the Olden Style (to give it its full title) was composed in 1884 to mark the bicentenary of his fellow Norwegian, the playwright Ludvig Holberg. Originally conceived for solo piano with each of its five moments based on a popular Baroque dance form, it was later arranged for string orchestra to become one of the composer’s most popular works.


Although composed in the same year as his thunderous 1812 Overture (a work he thought little of) Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings is music to caress the ears, soothe your soul and lift your spirits. It was, he said, ‘a piece from the heart’ that he ‘loved terribly’.
