Fantasia ' From Schubert's Sketch Book'
THE rhythms and melodic idioms of peasant song in Norway were never long absent from
Crieg's music. He did not often use actual folk songs, but cast his pieces in the style of folk-music, sometimes decking them out in the gayest colours of the instruments, as in these Symphonic Dances, originally written for Orchestra. In them we find much of pastoral joy, and sometimes, we may feel, just a trace of the gentle melancholy in nature.
