This is Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, Op. 46, whose four movements highlight important scenes from Henrik Ibsen's most famous play. Oddly enough, his Peer Gynt was a critique of 19th-century Norwegian society, written during his period of self-imposed exile in Rome. But the incidental music Edvard Grieg composed for the play is considered an important work of Norwegian nationalism. The Washington Idaho Symphony will perform the Suite No. 1, featuring the famous "Morning Scene" in the Norwegian mountains; the death of Peer Gynt's mother, Ase; the exotic "Anitra's Dance," when Peer makes an excursion to western Asia; and the ever-popular "In the Hall of the Mountain King," a segment that occurs in Peer Gynt's dream.
