The Holberg Suite , Op. 40, more properly "From Holberg's Time" (Norwegian: Fr å Holbergs tid, German: Aus Holbergs Zeit ), subtitled "Suite in Olden Style" (Norwegian: Suite i gammel stil , German: Suite im alten Stil ), is a suite of five movements based on eighteenth century dance forms, written by Edvard Grieg in 1884 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Danish-Norwegian humanist playwright Ludvig Holberg.
The Holberg Suite was originally composed for the piano, but a year later was adapted by Grieg himself for string orchestra. The suite consists of an introduction and a set of dances. It is an early essay in neo-classicism, an attempt to echo as much as was known in Grieg's time of the music of Holberg's era.
