About this artist

Norwegian composer and pianist, born in Bergen, 15 June 1843, died 4 September 1907, also in Bergen. By borrowing rhythmic and melodic elements from Norwegian folk music, he created nationally romantic and patriotic music. Most famous are perhaps his compositions for the play "Peer Gynt" (written by Henrik Ibsen), which features pieces such as "Morning Mood" and "In The Hall of The Mountain King". Edvard Grieg is considered to be the greatest Norwegian composer of all time.
