first page of the original MS
Oslo, 1993. 26 x 34 cm, 10, 138 pp. Beautiful full-color facsimile of the autograph fair copy score from the Summer of 1868. After its completion the manuscript was used for a number of concerts—including the premiere in Copenhagen and a performance in Leipzig—and bears clear traces of corrections and changes to the orchestration. Although Grieg initially had difficultly finding a publisher (Fritzsch in Leipzig accepted it 1872) the piece has become one of the most frequently played compositions of its kind. Introduction in Nor-Eng. Bibliophile edition of 500 copies issued on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Attractive binding in full linen with signature of Grieg embossed in gold on the cover. $275
