maurice marechal – solveig’s song

Maurice Marechal plays this haunting melody from Peer Gynt, the incidental music to Henrik Ibsen’s 1867 play of the same name, written by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg in 1875.

Here is another beautiful recording of this tune, sung by Luisa Tetrazzini, from 1914.
