Note: Grieg’s interest in Norwegian folk styles comes through in this well known piece. This arrangement uses open-string fifths and harmonics to create coloristic variety. Wedding Day at Troldhagen is frequently requested for weddings, both as preludes/reception music and as a processional or recessional. An added plus: it’s lots of fun to play.
