Grieg and Melodic Sentimentalism


7 of January, 2024 (Sunday) - 4:00 p.m.
Opus 45 is the most famous piece of the piano trio of sonatas composed by Grieg. Compared to previous works, the extraordinary freshness of the melody, the delicacy of the harmonic language, the secondary role of the subject matter as such, the constant reference to Scandinavian folk music as an inexhaustible source of inspiration, confirm the strengths of the writing in this piece. In fact, they appear there better coordinated and resolved in the constructive and formal context of the genre.
