Waltz Caprice, Op. 37, No. 2:
Waltz Caprice No. 2 begins with a wonderfully lilting and syncopated theme. Kathleen Dale writes, "The trio [middle] section is composed of...slender material: an 8-bar phrase of two figures, one a block of reiterated chords, the other the continuous alternation of a melody note with the [half-step] below. The phrase is repeated nine times. Far from being monotonous, the effect is magical...[there is a] feeling of suspense as to where the next modulation will lead..."

The Last Spring, Op. 34, No. 2:
The Last Spring is one of Two Elegiac Melodies that Grieg arranged for solo piano as well as for string orchestra. Grieg made these four-hand settings with beautiful economy of means. The distribution of the thematic and harmonic material achieves refined and expressive effects.

Norwegian Dance, Op. 35, No. 2
This Norwegian Dance is among Grieg's best and most characteristic piano duets. It is based on an Old Norwegian mountain melody. As is usual with Grieg, he has treated this folk tune in a uniquely personal way, making it his own while retaining its uniquely Norwegian flavor.

This title has selections that range in difficulty from SMP Level 5-6.
