Peer Gynt is a play by the Norwegian poet/playwright Henrik Ibsen for which Edvard Grieg wrote incidental music. The music for this play is most familiar in the form of two Concert Suites (each with 4 movements) created by Grieg some years later. The Peer Gynt Suite No.1 Op.46 is the best known and its four movements in English are called Morning Mood, The Death of Ase, Anitra's Dance, and In the Hall of the Mountain King. The music on this page is "Morning Mood" and will be familiar to many people from its frequent use of television adverts to convey a relaxed pastoral mood. This arrangement of the music is by Andy Ralls. It is illustrated here using the version for Flute and Piano, but we include parts for other instruments replacing the flute. The piano part is identical in all arrangements, though the instrumental part varies in pitch depending on the range of the instrument. Here is the Piano part (or score) and the alternative solo parts for Flute, Oboe, Cor Anglais, Clarinet, Trumpet, Violin and Viola. You can also download a MIDI file or MP3 file of the Flute and Piano version. On mfiles we have have an arrangement of this movement for Solo Piano and the Full Score and Parts of the original orchestral version.
