Edvard Grieg is to Norway what Shakespeare is to England: his country's most celebrated son. Find out more about the composer of Peer Gynt and a legendary Piano Concerto.
Grieg was given an honorary degree by Cambridge University in 1894. Straight after the ceremony he rushed to the post office and sent a telegram to a friend, a physician in Bergen who shared his surname. He signed his telegram ‘Doctor Grieg’.
