Today, on composer Edvard Grieg’s birthday, we are delighted to announce the release of our film contribution to the Walter Scott 250 anniversary year.
Harps of the North : Edvard Grieg & Andreas Munch in the World of Walter Scott tells the story of a song, composed by Grieg to words by Munch, that was created in Rome and stimulated by a pilgrimage to Abbotsford, the home of Walter Scott.
Decades after his death, Walter Scott was still a major influence on writers and musicians in Europe and – the subject of our film – Scandinavia.
Watch our Harps of the North film below, or on Youtube here.
