Centre for Grieg Research

Griegsamlingen i Norsk dokumentarv

From Golden Age to Bergen Wave

The Centre for Grieg Research does research on Edvard Grieg's works, his historical importance and cultural relevance in the past and the present. The centre's goal is further to contribute to international research on the diverse traditions in Norwegian music after Grieg and the close exchanges between regional music and international trends in the Nordic regions.
