Griegs starting point was Ludwig M. Lindeman’s important collection of folk melodies – and for the Norwegian Dance No. 1 he chose melody No. 302, although he treated the original with considerable freedom. Even though he composed the dances for piano four hands, the music seems to be crying out for orchestral sonority; Grieg himself tried to orchestrate the dances, but ultimately abandoned the attempt. Many others have since tried their luck, with varying degrees of success. Here is Øystein Baadsvik’s transformation of the first dance for tuba and strings.
