The Death of Åse wasoriginally composed as part of the incidental music for Ibsen’s play Peer Gynt.  Over 10 years later, Grieg selected certainelements from this work, organising these into two orchestral suites.  The Death of Åse features in the first suite, Op.46, along with Morning, Anitra’s Dance and In the Hall of the Mountain King.

Åse is the motherof Peer Gynt.  When her son absconds withthe daughter of an affluent local farmer, Åse sacrifices everything to pay thepenalties on his behalf and, left destitute, dies of poverty and illness.  Cheery stuff!

Although fairly straightforward in terms of notes and rhythms, this piece has been classed as 'intermediate' as it requires good intonation and ensemble skills to perform effectively.
