Lovers of the music of Edvard Grieg most often discover him through his popular orchestral works like the Piano Concerto and the Peer Gynt and Holberg Suites and are often surprised that he was more a composer in short forms for piano or voice than of the kinds of large works for orchestra that dominated Nineteenth Century European music. This is compounded by the fact that Grieg was a very talented orchestrator who had such a unique way with strings, winds and horns that one knows a work is his immediately upon hearing it.

Those looking for more would be well advised to get the Symphonic Dances and then to fill that in with this disc, which contains a complete version of the incidental music for Bjornson's play, Sigurd Jorsalfar, plus the more rarely heard Funeral March and Mountain Spell. A bonus of the CD era was the added time available for recordings and this allowed Sigurd Jorsalfar to be recorded with all its music, adding four previously unrecorded sections that were not part of the Suite excerpted by Grieg. The additions are not minor, and almost double the length of the Suite. There is an atmospheric Prelude and a rousing King's Ballad with full chorus to end the piece, as well as an interlude which repeats the main theme of the Homage March, but in a way that brings out the warmth and tenderness of the music rather than the grandiosity in the arrangement of the March itself. Though early (1872), the orchestration is fully characteristic of Grieg in the instrumental movements; the sections for baritone and chorus seem more Germanic, but that may be just the way I hear it.
