Tune of the Day: Solveig's Song

from “Peer Gynt” by Edvard Grieg

Originally written in 1875 for Act IV of the incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's play Peer Gynt, “Solveig's Song” (that is, the song sung by the character Solveig) was later included as the last movement of the second suite extracted from the work.

Perchance both winter and spring will pass
and next summer, and the entire year: —
but at last you will come, that I know for sure;
and I'll still be waiting, for I once promised I would.

Thanks to Françoise from France for suggesting this piece!
