Edvard Grieg-Part 3

Grieg's Birthplace

Grieg was born at Bergen, June 15, 1843. The city of his birth apart from its inspiring natural location is one of the great intellectual centers of Europe.

It has been said that a finer spirit of culture and pure democracy exists in Bergen than in any other old world city.

Grieg's Early Training

Naturally Grieg's first instruction came from his mother. His lessons started at the age of six. Possibly more important even than the regular lessons was the fact that he had the advantage of hearing his mother play continuously. There were weekly musicals in the home, and everything possible was done to encourage the talent of the child which even at that time was manifest. The mother was by no means a lenient teacher. Energetic and clear-headed she insisted upon having her boy practice things that were unpleasant to him as well as those which were pleasant.
