Y5 explores ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’

Year 5 Musicians have been exploring  Edvard Grieg’s ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King.’ Evard Grieg is one of Norway’s most famous classical, romantic composers – who wrote musical stories about the myths and monsters of the country’s forests and mountains.

Listen closesly to our improvisation…Can you can hear the unpitched percussion ‘foot-steps’ of Peer Gynt (the hero) creeping away? Can you identify the ‘sneaky tune’ of the Mountain King chasing him?
