Wedding Day at the Troldhaugen by Edvard Grieg

I recently recorded a piece called Wedding Day at the Troldhaugen by Grieg. Edvard Grieg was born on June 15,1843 in Bergen, Norway and died in September 4,1907. He composed numerous amount of Norwegian folk music, and  performed these folk songs in front of large audiences on the piano. He composed in the Romantic period, and is widely considered one of the leading Romantic era composers.  He composed 66 short pieces, published in ten different books, one of them is the Wedding day at the Troldhaugen.

This piece was a very difficult piece as there were many chords that were fast, and there were numerous octaves that were hard to reach. It was also difficult to memorize as only one part repeated itself during the entire piece. Although it was difficult, it was a beautiful piece and I really enjoyed playing it.

I hope you enjoy listening!


  1. Dear Sarah,
    I enjoy you playing this difficult piece.
    I never knew about his composer, and now you introduced me to new music.
    I like it, but I even more impressed with you, how much work you put in to learn this difficult piece.
    We love you and always proud of your accomplishments.
