LA MONNAIE DE MUNT

In the Hall of the Mountain King

Edvard Grieg

You will immediately recognise this musical fragment, with one of the most recognisable and quoted melodies in the entire history of music. Peer Gynt fantasises about a visit to a troll, the mountain king, who, seated on his throne, rules over a people of gnomes and goblins. According to Grieg himself, it is the most idiosyncratic Norwegian work ever written.
