Anonymous critic: “Edvard Grieg is, above all, a Northern composer. Every movement glows with strong local color and we breathe a sharp scent of pine with every bar. Grieg is a poet. He dreams over great Sabbath-still inland seas and throws over us the spell of the midnight sun’s mystic phantasies.” (from a Parisian concert review, 1890)
