The World's Greatest Music
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.
In the summer of 1906 Grieg penned his final composition - the Four Psalms - and then, seriously weakened, left for the comparative warmth of a hotel in Christiana. He was on the verge of undertaking a journey to Britain in the autumn of 1907 when he suffered a massive heart attack, dying in hospital shortly after arrival.
