Listening Perspectives

Now that you are familiar with how different listeners approach a piece of music, let’s combine your analytic skills with putting yourself in the shoes of different listeners by listening to a new music selection titled “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from the Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, Op. 46 by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg.

Peer Gynt is the incidental music to Henrik Ibsen‘s 1867 play of the same name loosely based on a Norwegian fairy tale. It tells the story of Peer Gynt, a Norwegian peasant anti-hero, who is constantly drunk, getting in and out of trouble, and experiencing real and imaginary adventures, including the one that is portrayed in the piece to which you will be listening.

play “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from the Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, Op. 46 (2:51)

There is only one music idea in the piece. Here it is played by the violins (pizzicato). Familiarize yourself with the entire piece by listening to it at least three times from beginning to end. How do you think this piece would be described by different types of listeners — casual, referential, critical, or perceptive?

    • Timbre (instruments playing the theme by themselves or in different combinations).
    • Pitch (for instance, an entry of the theme at a different registers, i.e., higher or lower than another).
    • Tempo (at what theme entry does the piece start getting faster–accelerando? Does the piece get slower again?
