Geirr Tveitt

1 post in this topic

I just heard this Norwegian composer for the first time on WKCR yesterday, and enjoyed the short orchestral pieces they played of his. I had to leave the car before they announced the title of the piece. I guess it was some type of orchestral Suite. Anybody know what piece it was? On Wiki, they said that 4/5 of his work was destroyed in a fire in 1970, but they've been trying to put together what pieces they can by individual orchestra parts, transcriptions, etc... 

Which of his pieces was considered his greatest work? Was it lost in the fire, or reconstructed? I tried to get to his website, but wasn't allowed because I didn't have the right software.

TIA
