A Christmas Special in Grieg's Home
An introduction to Edvard Grieg's piano music in beautiful settings at Troldhaugen. Includes transport from the city centre.
For the Christmas-edition of our popular lunchtime concert, we have moved the concert from the concert hall to Edvard Grieg’s sitting room in the beautiful Villa at Troldhaugen. Here you will enjoy a half-hour piano recital performed by some of Bergen’s well-known pianists. The pianist will present his/her Grieg favourites on Grieg’s own Steinway Grand Piano from 1892, an instrument perfect for Grieg’s music and the unique settings.
After the concert you will have time to explore the garden with Grieg’s composer’s hut and the grave site. The cafeteria offers a limited selection of cakes, coffee/tea, soda, beer and wine for sale.
The ticket includes the concert (duration 30 minutes), entrance to the exhibition and a guided tour through Edvard Grieg's villa.
Welcome to Troldhaugen at Christmas time, a unique opportunity to enjoy Grieg’s music in the composer’s sitting room.
