Tune of the Day: March of the Dwarfs
by Edvard Grieg, arranged for flute and piano
This memorable piece appears in the fifth of the ten volumes comprising Grieg's Lyric Pieces for solo piano, published in 1891. It is certainly among the most well-known pieces by the Norwegian composer. Cast in a well-defined ABA form, it contrasts the firm, rhythmic (dwarves are marching, after all!) material of the outer sections with a sweet lyrical melody.
Thanks to Sophia for suggesting this piece!
