A Norwegian conductor Arild Remmereit will wield baton at three concerts in mid-June performed by the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, to mark the centenary of the death of the great Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg in 2007 in Malaysia.
Remmereit will bring a whiff of his homeland to three concerts in Malaysia on June 15 -17 with a selection of music combining Norway’s most famous playwright and most famous composer; The Peer Gynt Suite by Edvard Grieg, works by Koussevitzky, Stravinsky’s version of four authentic Norwegian melodies as arranged for a never-released film about the wartime occupation of Norway, as well as the first of Carl Nielsen’s six symphonies.
