Product Code : Grieg_02
"Morning Mood", which in Norwegian is Morgenstemning is more popularly known as just "Morning". It is one of the movements from Grieg's Peer Gynt, Op. 23, written in 1875 as incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's play of the same name, and was also included as the first of four movements in Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, Op. 46. The melody in the piece alternates between flute and oboe. The piece depicts the rising of the sun during act 4, scene 4, of Ibsen's play, which finds the eponymous hero stranded in the Moroccan desert after his companions took his yacht and abandoned him there while he slept. The scene begins with the following description: A grove of palms and acacias at dawn. Peer Gynt is up a tree, protecting himself with a broken-off branch from a swarm of apes.
In our arrangement, the quick semi quaver runs in the middle section of the piece have been split between the 2 trumpets or horn and trombone where the range require this
