THE GRIEG ARCHIVES AT THE BERGEN PUBLIC LIBRARY

In 1906,  Edvard Grieg added a codicil to his will in which he and his wife, Nina, bequeathed his music manuscripts, articles and letters, printed music, books and other material to Bergen Public Library on condition that the library preserve them and make them accessible to the public.  The collection includes scores, letters, and other documents collected by Edvard , Nina, and friends.The documents of the Archives are now available on the web for music researchers and music lovers  to access.

TROLDHAUGEN AND THE GRIEG MUSEUM

Troldhaugen, the home of Edvard Grieg and his wife, Nina, is an estate outside of Bergen. The Villa was built in 1885, and the couple lived there the last 22 summers of Edvard Grieg’s life. Troldhaugen became a museum in 1928.  It now includes Grieg’s Villa, the composer’s hut and Edvard and Nina's gravesite.  Also on the grounds are a modern museum building and concert hall "Troldsalen," a chamber music hall seating 200 people.  Troldsalen is the center of the museum’s extensive concert activities. The  attractive hall has excellent acoustics and a large  window on stage that overlooks Edvard Grieg's hut. http://griegmuseum.no/en/about-troldhaugen
