Grieg's successful series of Lyric Pieces reaches a unique climax in the eighth book. After the publisher almost had to force him – Grieg was at the point of becoming tired of composing Lyric Pieces – the composer succeeded in creating a spectacular and brilliant closing piece, "Wedding Day at Troldhaugen". This recollection of Grieg's own silver wedding anniversary is extremely effective, and performable not just by piano virtuosos – talented newcomers will also enjoy unlocking its technical secrets!
