Edvard Grieg - Peer Gynt - Suite No. 1, Op. 46 - IV. In the Hall of the Mountain King

The Incidental music to Peer Gynt, Op. 23, was written in 1875 by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg as incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's 1876 play Peer Gynt. It premiered along with the play on 24 February 1876 in Christiania (now Oslo).

Later, in 1888 and 1891, Grieg extracted eight movements to make two four-movement suites: Suite No. 1, Op. 46, and Suite No. 2, Op. 55.
