Joe Offer Obit: André Previn (1929-2019) (31) RE: Obit: André Previn (1929-2019) 28 Feb 19

Wikipedia says that Edvard Grieg had Scottish roots, and the family name was actually Greig. I've often wondered whether Edvard might be related to folksong collector Gavin Greig (1856-1914), and Wikipedia confirms my suspicion.

As for André Previn, I think he made classical music much more approachable for us who were raised on Peter, Paul & Mary (and PP&M made Texas Gladden much more approachable for some of us, so it all works out in the end).
