Grieg's complete incidental music to Peer Gynt
is comprised of 22 pieces;
it is the two orchestral suites arranged from eight of these piecfes that have become staples of the repertoire, with innumerable performances and dozens of recordings. This inexpensive, authoritative edition contains both suites complete, including such concert hall favorites as "Morning Mood," " Anitra's Dance" and "In the Hall of the Mountain King."
Musicians and music lovers will appreciate having these favorite scores in one handy volume; students and scholars will want to have them on hand for the study of Grieg's melodic and harmonic style and orchestration, as well as for his influence on a wide range of composers, from Debussy to Sibelius.
