question Harmonic Structure - middle section Grieg's Wedding Day at Troldhaugen
August 27, 2010, 02:45:29 AM by shaunarundell

I've just started to work on the middle section/movement of one of Grieg's lyric  masterpieces  'Wedding Day at Troldhaugen' and I'm not totally clear on the harmonic structure.

Here is what I can figure out myself.

Its starts out in G with a 8, 7, 6 motif, making heavy use of Major 7ths, 6ths and suspended chords, giving it the modern/romantic/folksong feeling so common with Grieg lyric pieces. After passing through D for a few bars, it finishes on the resolution of Gsus4 chord, completing the first pass.

We then move onto B major restating the motif/themes and passing through C#/F# major, in a similar fashion with the first pass  and then back to G to develop the original motif with some lovely hand crossing and finishing the section/movement on on the same Gsus4 chord resolution.

I get the G->B modulation - we are moving in 3rds, a common device for more modern pieces trying to escape the old tonic/dominant straight jacket. So I guess the structure could be
first pass
G D G  (tonic/dominant/tonic) then modulate in 3rds and
2nd pass
B F# B (tonic/dominant/tonic)
and back to G, original tonic to finish

But they way I read it, we don't go through F# in the 2nd pass we go through  C#.

I suspect I have some errors in or  am missing some depth in my analysis.
Any views, comment ?

Does anyone have suggestions for a few relatively short Grieg pieces that would complement Wedding Day at Troldhaugen as the last of the group?

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
