The Peer Gynt Suite may be Edvard Grieg's most famous composition. Its melodies have insinuated themselves into our culture so that they are now universally familiar. The movements are: Morning Song, Asa's Death, Anitra's Dance, and In the Hall of the Mountain King.
This edition presents, for the first time, the entire suite in a version for solo guitar. This is a substantial work for the guitarist that, while requiring solid technique, is quite rewarding for both the player and the audience. Also included is a transcription of Grieg's beautiful Solveig's Song. There is a confusing error in the introductory text. Click here to read the corrected version.
