Hommage à Grieg

There is a recurrent theme running through the program presented by the Dena Piano Duo in this production; all four composers and works have a particular relationship to Edvard Grieg. Both Johannes Brahms and Camille Saint-Saëns were friends of Grieg, and in several of his works the inspiration Grieg gained from his colleagues in Vienna and Paris is easy to hear. In between the works of Brahms and Saint-Saëns the Dena Piano Duo play two Norwegian works they have commissioned from the composers Wolfgang Plagge and Terje Bjørklund with this recording in mind.


Alle vier Stücke dieser Produktion mit dem Dena Piano Duo haben auf eine ganz bestimmte Weise mit dem norwegischen Komponisten Edvard Grieg zu tun. Bei den Rahmenkompositionen der CD von Brahms und Saint-Saëns ist die Beziehung zu Grieg durch persönliche Bekanntschaft und Freundschaft gegeben. Aber auch innermusikalische Verknüpfungen und Inspirationen, die Grieg aus den Werken dieser beiden Zeitgenossen aufnahm, lassen sich in beide Richtungen nachweisen. Zwischen den Werken von Brahms und Saint-Saëns spielt das Dena Piano Duo zwei zeitgenössische norwegische Kompositionen, Auftragskompositionen der Komponisten Wolfgang Plagge und Terje Bjørklund für diese Einspielung.


Det finnes en rød tråd i det programmet Dena Piano Duo presenterer i denne produksjonen. De fire komponistene og verkene har nemlig alle et bestemt forhold til Edvard Grieg. Johannes Brahms og Camille Saint-Saëns var for eksempel begge venner av Grieg, og det er ikke vanskelig å høre at Grieg i flere av sine verker har latt seg inspirere av de to kollegene fra Wien og Paris. Mellom verkene til Brahms og Saint- Saëns spiller Dena Piano Duo to norske verker som duoen har bestilt av komponistene Wolfgang Plagge og Terje Bjørklund med tanke på denne innspillingen.
