Ted's Piano World *


The Peer Gynt Incidental music was inspired by a five-act play written by Henrik Ibsen in 1875.  A number of oddball and supernatural characters were featured, and the action ranged from Norway to Cairo to Morocco to the Sahara Desert.  These two pieces from the Peer Gynt Suite #1, composed in 1888, were arranged for piano duet by Adolf Ruthardt, who created similar arrangements for many works by Grieg and other composers.

As Morning Mood ends with the same E-major chord on which Anitra's Dance begins, it seemed natural to combine the two pieces into a single work.  A few notes have been added to the MP3 secondo part for continuity.  There is a 1-measure lead-in.
