Estimate: $1200+

Description

Important Norwegian composer and pianist (1843-1907) whose works, often with a strong nationalistic flavor, include such repertory staples as the 'Piano Concerto in A minor,' the incidental music to Peer Gynt, and the 'Holberg Suite.' Highly sought-after 4.25 x 6.5 cabinet photo of Grieg in a stylish suit, signed on the reverse in black ink. Published by Christensen & Morange of Copenhagen. Also bears a notation of the collector's name on the reverse. In very good to fine condition, with light scuffing to the image, and some small stains and a corner crack to the signed side. Originates from the collection of American violinist and pianist Louis Persinger (1887-1966), who trained at the Leipzig Conservatory and later taught at Juilliard, mentoring the likes of Yehudi Menuhin, Ruggiero Ricci, and Isaac Stern.
