Nothing about recordings, but HARVARD CRIMSON has this:
The Scandinavian Concert
NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED
February 17, 1900
Those who went to the Scandinavian concert last night in Sanders Theatre enjoyed an evening of typical Norwegian music given in a thoroughly delightful manner. The orchestral music was played by members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The feature of the evening, however, was the singing of Miss Aagot Lunde, a mezzo-soprano of remarkably sympathetic voice. In her selections from Grieg, she showed great power of adaptation--first, in "The Autumn Gale," full of action, but with the dreariness of the Norwegian minor; then in Eet Syn, a short, vivacious snatch of song; and finally in Solweig's Cradle Song, deeper in quality with a peculiar languishing movement.
The "Peer Gynt Suite" played by the orchestra was enthusiastically received. In "Morgenstimmung," where Grieg gives the scene of Peer's death, the joyousness of the daybreak is strangely contrasted with the sad minor strains of which death is the theme. In "Aase's Tod" is expressed the sinking to rest of a soul wearied with the sorrows of life. "Anitras Tanz" is an infectious little dance into which Grieg has introduced an Oriental element. The final movement, 'In der Halle des Berg Konig's," introduces the troll music, an exuberant staccato, illustrative of the grotesque, fantastic, splendor of the unearthly mountain kingdom. The two Norwegian dances which ended the evening were heartily received.
