Centre for Grieg Research
Centre for Grieg Research was established by the University of Bergen as a cooperation between the University of Bergen, Bergen Public Library (representing the Bergen Municipality) and Edvard Grieg Museum Troldhaugen (representing Art Museums of Bergen).
Bergen Public Library has the largest collection of original manuscripts and material pertaining Grieg and his music: manuscripts, letters, scores and books. The library has also received donations of manuscripts of the composer Harald Sæverud, and others. The Library has offered infrastructure and financial help to the Centre, so the Centre is located near these sources in the main building of the Library (Strømgaten).
The Centre now has one professor and two part time professors and will have 2-3 PhD-students with full scholarsships. The Centre will also have a few visiting scholars.
The University of Bergen is responsible for the Centre, its staff, administration and organisation. The Bergen Municipality is paying for a professor for five years.
The Kavli Trust has donated a substantial sum to be spent over the next three years.
