A unique programme dedicated to the music of Edvard Grieg will include various works by the famous Norwegian composer. It will start with arrangements of his Peer Gynt suite by legendary jazz masters Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. Later on we will hear Lithuanian jazz musicians’ arrangements of Grieg’s works. These will include jazz compositions that have grown out of the composer’s well-known piano pieces, songs and orchestral fragments. Through improvisation and jazz, we will experience the layers of Grieg’s music in a new way, which will emerge before us like uncharted and newly discovered fjords.
