Grieg's incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's play 'Peer Gynt' is greatly loved by many and is generally considered to be one of the foremost expressions of 'Norwegian national identity'. Comprising the 'best' and most popular numbers, 'Suite No. 1' was an immediate success. Of Grieg's 180 or so songs, many of which owe their inspiration to the composer's wife, Nina, the yearning 'Solveig's Song' (track 11) is the most often performed. With 'Den Bergtekne' (The Mountain Thrall), the longest of Grieg's orchestral songs, we enter the realm of the troll-forests, ruled by deadly dangerous supernatural powers.
