Poster SONG OF NORWAY - November 1988

This musical biography of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg is based on the play of the same name. Living in poverty after graduating from a music conservatory, Grieg scandalises his family by marrying his cousin Nina.

Grieg has an affair with a former schoolmate, Therese Berg, a wealthy woman who makes a deal with her influential father to end the romance if he'll arrange a concert for Grieg in Stockholm. Grieg eventually travels to Rome, where his significance as an artist begins to find appreciation.
