30 Day Song Challenge #16

Day 16: a song that’s a classic favorite.

Grieg: Pianoconcert – Hannes Minnaar – Limburgs Symfonie Orkest olv. Otto Tausk

We have now arrived in the part of the list where the categories aren’t always clear. What is “a classic favorite” exactly? Is it an oldie that I like? Is it a piece of classical music? I don’t know, and because “classic favorite” and day 18’s “favorite from the 1970s” are fairly interchangeable, I am going with something classical.

I am not enough of a classical connoisseur/snob to know much about it, or which performance is the best, or arcane stuff like that, but I do know that I like Grieg, and especially his Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16, and that I was in the audience of this particular recording.
