Grieg's incidental music to Ibsen's play Peer Gynt was composed in 1875. The composer later revised eight of the 23 movements to form two orchestral suites. Morning appears as the first movement of the first suite, but was originally the introduction to Act 4 of the play. Grieg's title for the movement was Morgenstemning (Morning Mood).
The Aeolia arrangement is supplied with separate parts for flute and harp. The harp part includes markings for suggested pedalling and fingering.
|Please note that although the image below shows the actual layout of a page of the Aeolia arrangement, it does not reflect the quality of the printed version. This is because the image on your computer screen reproduces the original at only 72 pixels (dots) per inch, with the result that slurs are jagged, stave lines are not equally spaced, and the appearance is generally crude. The actual printed version is produced using laser printers at over 34 million dots per page, resulting in complete smoothness and evenness in the quality of the print.|
