In autumn 2012 I visited the Norwegian city of Bergen. A long-cherished wish came true. The city is even more beautiful than I could imagine!
Very interesting was to learn that Bergen is Grieg's place of birth, his city, where he lived and passed away.
Grieg is a world famous composer, and most known and beloved because of the "Peer Gynt Suite", and his Piano concerto in A minor.

I used Grieg's "Holberg Suite", part one, for this video about Bergen, because it was composed for Ludvig Holberg, who was born in Bergen in 1648, and who's statue is there in the harbour.

I used my own photos for this video.
