Is there a more classic Halloween piece than this?! When Edvar Grieg wrote his “Peer Gynt Suite”, I wonder if he knew how many people around the world would know this piece? Written in the key of B minor, this piece repeats the same patterns over and over while continuing to grow in tension and dynamics. With a showy glissando at the end, it’s the perfect piece for any teen student looking for something to celebrate the season.
Watch out for continuous staccatos, octaves in both hands, grace notes, and more. Great for a dazzling Halloween recital or performance!
