“Morning Mood” from the Incidental Music to Peter Gynt (Morgenstimmung aus der Bühnen zu “Peter Gynt” Opus 23 Nr. 13)
Facsimile of the autograph score. Orchestra version from 1886
(Original in the Royal Library, Copenhagen)
Frankfurt, 2007. 23 x 30 cm, 16, iv pp. Handsome full-color facsimile of the autograph full score (revised version, 1886), issued on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the composer’s death. Peer Gynt op.23, incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's 1867 play of the same name, is one of Grieg's most iconic works, and “Morning Mood”, slightly more than 4 minutes in length is probably one of the best known even among those who have never heard of Grieg. Although written in 1875 just in time for the premiere of the play, the composer continued to revise it over the next 20 years. "Morning Mood" serves as the prelude to Act 4. Afterword in Ger-Eng by Finn Benestad. Wrappers. $36.
