Good, short noon hour concert. Grieg’s house is interesting but essentially three rooms. The guides at the house are earnest. His grounds are pleasant regardless of any knowledge of Grieg. The museum is good and informative. The concert hall is lovely and the concert (changing musicians) was good and terse.
I would expect that people come here wanting to be beguiled by the thought or idea of Grieg but there really isn’t anything here to make you adore Grieg unless you already know him and admire him. It’s a great way of putting him and his work into context but it would be like going to a Marylin Monroe museum and falling in love with her when you’ve never heard of her before - it isn’t going to happen.
So don’t go if you don’t know him, just because he’s from Bergen or just because he’s Norwegian - I don’t think it works that way.
