Carl Nielsen’s Helios Overture, opus 17; Edvard Grieg’s March from Sigurd the Crusader and Suite from Peer Gynt, and for the finale, Sibalius’ Finlandia, opus 26. A rousing brass and wind orchestra, the Herlev Concert Band, played in the marvelously resonant all-marble music hall. I liked the conductor’s expressive back, too.

Your drawing makes me feel like I’m sitting in the middle of the concert hall. It feels just right. You mentioned Edvard Grieg music being part of the concert. We had the chance to tour the Edvard Grieg home in Bergen, Norway. The house is small, but classy. It sits on a hill above a lake in a very peaceful location.
It’s great to see where artists work, and it sounds like Grieg’s home landscape was inspiring. By the way, if you have a chance to hear Carl Nielsen’s “Helios Overture”, it’s a splendid piece.
