An introduction to Edvard Grieg's piano music in beautiful settings. Includes transport from city center.
Enjoy the daily, half-hour lunchtime concerts in Troldsalen, perhaps Norway’s most beautiful chamber music hall. In the midst of the Grieg Museum grounds, a concert in Troldsalen is an experience not to be missed.
The Troldsalen concert hall is situated right next to Grieg’s villa and is constructed particularly with chamber music in mind. In the concert hall you can listen to Edvard Grieg’s music while enjoying the very scenery that once inspired him in his work. Through the large window that adorns the stage you can see the little cabin where many of Grieg’s pieces were composed.
The ticket includes the concert (duration 30 minutes), entrance to the exhibition and a guided tour through Edvard Grieg's villa, Troldhaugen.
Unique opportunity to visit the composer Edvard Grieg’s beautiful villa, his charming little composer’s cabin and his monumental gravesite – all located in the lovely natural surroundings at Hop in Bergen.
