Edvard Hagerup Grieg’s popular ’Solveig’s Song comes from his Peer Gynt Suite No. 2. Op.55.

Grieg’s suite was composed as a result of a request by Ibsen for Grieg to compose incidental music to Peer Gynt. The suite was first performed in 1876 and turned Grieg into a national figure.

Solveigs sang is from the 4th movement.

This arrangement has been set for a variety of solo instruments including:Violin,Flute,Oboe,Clarinet,Soprano & Alto Saxophone, Cornet/Trumpet/Flugelhorn, Eb Alt/Tenor Horn and Euphonium/Trombone (Bass & Treble Clef), with keyboard/piano accompaniment.

The pianist should feel free to embellish my given part,(if so wished), and there is the option for more advanced jazz/pop pianists to add fills if desired.

This piece is very popular in Norway, and I sincerely hope my setting will not upset too many ’long haired’ musicians!

This version is for Bb instruments.
