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 scandalizes 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. His association with Therese is not really finished and Grieg’s humble piano, a gift from the self-sacrificing Nina, is overshadowed by Therese’s gift of a grand piano. Back to back with the subsequent and equally unsuccessful The Great Waltz, the last two films of writer, producer, and director Andrew Stone ended his nearly 50 year career.
