Grieg Peer Gynt

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Marc Minkowski
Miah Persson Solveig
Ann Hallenberg Anitra
Johannes Weisser Peer Gynt
BBC Singers

Who can resist Grieg’s vivid Peer Gynt, scored for Ibsen’s play, especially when presented by the vivacious Mark Minkowski with an ideal cast? Melting mezzo-soprano Miah Persson is the faithful Solveig, while the marvellous Ann Hallenberg and Johannes Weisser take up the parts of the Bedouin Anitra and the hapless rake Peer Gynt himself. Joined by the BBC Singers, the BBC SO performs the whole score with all its highly-coloured episodes, from the poignancy of ‘Solveig’s Song’, to the hollering trolls in the ‘Hall of the Mountain King’ and the timeless serenity of ‘Morning Mood’.

The concert will finish at approximately 10pm
