The World's Greatest Music
Edvard Grieg is to Norway what Shakespeare is to England: his country's most celebrated son. Find out more about the composer of Peer Gynt and a legendary Piano Concerto.
In 1874–76, Grieg composed incidental music for the premiere of Henrik Ibsen's play Peer Gynt, at the request of the author - pictured. The opening movement, Morning, and In the Hall of the Mountain King have become staples of the concert repertoire and have featured in many TV advertisements.
