Woodwind Choir or Ensemble, Double Bass - Advanced Intermediate - Digital Download
Composed by Edvard Grieg (1843-1907). Arranged by Philip Le Bas. Romantic Period. Score, Set of Parts. 116 pages. Published by Philip Le Bas (S0.509915).

Item Number: S0.509915

A new arrangement by Philip Le Bas of three movements of Grieg's "Peer Gynt Suite 1" for wind ensemble:

1. Morning Mood

2. Anitra's Dance

3. The Hall of the Mountain King

The three contrasting movements work well with a wind decet, retaining (and perhaps even enhancing) the bucolic, Spring-like effect of "Morning Mood", the sinuous, but light-footed dance performed by Anitra, and the dark, brooding, and ultimately hair-raising drama of the Mountain King's abode.

The 2nd flute is asked to double on piccolo in the third movement, and there are parts for clarinets either in A (as in Grieg's original) or in B flat (in 6 sharps for the first movement, however!) The triangle adds considerably to the dance quality of the second movement. It might be performed by a horn player, both of whom are tacet here.
