    An animated interpretation of Edvard Grieg's music In The Hall of the Mountain King. I suppose in these highly charged and discordant times, it could be an allegory for this, a metaphor for that, a cautionary tale or a message with a moral, but the sweeping music and simple fairytale of Norwegain Trolls and a young mans adventure that it tells, for me this is the Original Nordic Noir.

    Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) enjoyed telling the Folk stories of Norway in his music. Grieg was a leading composer of the Romantic era and brought the music and folk legends of Norway to an international audience. In The Hall Of The Mountain King is from a bigger piece of music, the Peer Gynt Suite, which tells the story of a boy called Peer Gynt who falls in love with a girl that he is not allowed to marry. Very upset he runs away to the mountains but he gets caught by trolls who take him to their king. He tries to escape in the middle of the night but the trolls hear him and chase him through the mountain corridors. Finally Peer escapes.....
