Air and Rigaudon
By Edvard Grieg / arr. Brendan McBrien
Highland/Etling String Orchestra
Holberg Suite was composed in the Baroque dance-suite style, and consists of five movements, with the "Air and Rigaudon" comprising the fourth and fifth of these. In this arrangement, careful attention has been paid to the original intentions in Grieg's masterpiece. All dynamics, accents and stylistic markings should be observed in preparing this work, as it will bring out the wonderful subtleties in Grieg's writing.
