Edvard Grieg: Improvisations on Two Norwegian Folk Songs

These two fairly large-scale and elaborate improvisations on two Norwegian folk tunes were published in 1878. They show Grieg in his most playful mood: while both themes start of in a peaceful and reflective manner, the writing soon takes off into thunderous chords or quick, witty and dancelike variations, before the music slows down again.
“A Grieg version of Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsodies”
(Maurice Hinson)

Both improvisations were dedicated to Ida Åqvist, one of Sweden's most able pianists at the time, who was also a very good friend of Nina and Edvard Grieg.
