Edvard Grieg: Våren

Books | SSAA

Composer: Edvard Grieg
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Våren (Last Spring; Op.32 No.2) was the second in a collection of twelve songs, originally for solo Voice and Piano, published in 1881. It takes its lyrics from a poem by the Norwegian poet Aasmund Olavsson Vinje (1818-1870). Is has been arranged for SSAA Female Voices by Emil Nielsen.

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) was born in Bergen, Norway, and studied Piano at the Leipzig Conservatory. He became interested in Norwegian folksong, and began to employ it as a source of musical material and inspiration in his compositions. He was soon established as a major composer. Despite his success, Grieg was of a retiring disposition and spent most of his time at his house in Troldhaugen, near Bergen, avoiding visitors and shunning public acclaim.
