Shouldn't this be in the classical music forum? :g

(maybe if we do this enough times it might facilitate things)

Why the suites? Why not the whole deal?

Yeah, go for the Ibsen and forget about the music stuff.

30 years ago I had a 2 lp set of (supposedly) everything Grieg wrote for Peer Gynt. The music was conducted by Peer Dryer (?) on the Unicorn label In fact I worked for the company at that time.

From the same label I posted, the same group did a two cd "complete" version as well, with dialog. It is excellent as well, though it changes the context of the music a lot.

I had that Unicorn set, Chuck. It was a fine set!

Per Dreier -- excellent set. Wish I'd held onto it instead of replacing it with N. Jarvi's DG CD set . Live and learn.
