What piece is this? I used to hear it in old Loony Tunes cartoons. The third movement to Chopin's third sonata made me think of it.

Incidentally when I play or listen to the middle section of Brahms Rhapsody #1 I hear the main motive from 'Death of ├ůse'. Brahms knew Grieg so I wonder if he was influenced by this or vice versa.

I believe the Grieg preceded the Brahms by a few years...but I could be wrong laugh Um...Ase's Death was once one of "those" pieces for me; the type you just listened to on a loop for days on end...shattering shocked

After 'Morning Mood', 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' is my favorite movement from the suite - not least when the conductor (and orchestra) goes for broke......

But Solveig's Song is the loveliest moment in the complete work (incidental music).
