Grieg’s music: Between Late Romanticism and Modernity


6 of January, 2024 (Saturday) - 7:00 p.m.
Some of Grieg's masterpieces anticipate modernity. Ibsen's Peer Gynt is a character that looks to the 20th century. Everything suggests a new language: the atmosphere, the situations, the narrative typology, the values, the society. Nothing is similar to the Romantic period. Grieg's music describes in depth Ibsen's novelties and anticipates typical themes of the new century (XX).
