Ever since the first performance of the Peer Gynt Suite No.1 in 1876, this work has remained one of the most often performed compositions in the romantic repertoire. It was only a matter of time before other ensembles adapted the work and the present arrangement for woodwind quintet of the four-movement suite does justice to the sound world of Grieg, exploring the subtle nuances of these five very individual instruments. Included are naturally “Morning”, “ Aase’s Death”, “ Anitra’s Dance” and the jewel of the suite “In the Hall of the Mountain King”. The edition also includes a reference score to ease rehearsal of the work.
