Peer Gynt Suite

 

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.
