    I would think variations on a theme, or themes should have more--- ahhhh ----- variation, Many people adore Grieg's work, and he was an adequate composer, but I can't help thinking he was a little over rated. Of course you know what they say about opinions, but for what it's worth, that's mine..

    he managed to compose a few pieces that are considered classics like Peer Gynt and he is probably the greatest composer that Norway has ever produced....

    I can't, and won't even try to point out any technical flaws in his work. I just don't feel the emotion in his music. I'm not mad if you do.

    Thank you. I wasn't aware of that piece, and I can only go by what little I am familiar with.

    Guys.

    I am now watching a live broadcast from London's Royal Albert Hall - Promenade Concert.

    Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances.

    I'm familiar with Rachmaninov, but this is the first time I've heard this piece.
