Program Notes

Edvard Grieg's Lyric Suite is an orchestration of four of the six piano pieces from Book V of his Lyric Pieces, Op. 54. Both Grieg and the Austro-Hungarian conductor Anton Seidl had a hand in the orchestration. It consists of three pieces revised by Grieg from Seidl's arrangements, and one piece arranged by Grieg alone. Grieg had originally written the six Lyric Pieces of Book V for piano in 1891. In 1894, Anton Seidl, the conductor of the New York Philharmonic, orchestrated four of the pieces for his orchestra to play. He gave the work the title of Norwegian Suite. The four pieces he chose were:

2. Norwegian March
3. March of the Dwarfs
4. Notturno
6. Bell-Ringing.

After Seidl's death, Grieg then re-arranged the work and provided the final title, Lyric Pieces, of which March of the Dwarfs became the fourth piece.
