Grieg's visits to England between 1862 and 1906 brought him public acclaim, academic honours from Cambridge and Oxford and the friendship of royalty. Revealing that England had a far greater influence on his life and career than has hitherto been recorded, this book documents in detail the composer's 'almost regal progress' around the country as conductor and pianist, his lobbying for the cause of Norwegian independence and the new friends who changed his religious outlook.
