Edvward Grieg’s Peer Gynt music has permeated pop culture to an incredible degree, but you’ll also want to discover Grieg’s tune-filled Holberg Suite – a valentine to 18th century dance. Sibelius’ light, fresh Third Symphony lets the sun shine on the Finnish landscape. Warmth and 19th century nostalgia pervade Max Bruch’s lovely Double Concerto, further inspired by our splendid WSO soloists.
