Enjoy the beautiful villa, which Edvard Grieg referred to as his “best opus so far”. The concerts are arranged in the Grieg-couples sitting room, and will be performed on Grieg’s own Steinway Grand Piano from 1892.

All four concerts will be presented by professional musicians from Bergen, some young talents and some with international careers. Be sure to book your tickets early, there is only 45 tickets per concert!
