HOLBERG, in whose honour this suite is named, although a Norwegian by birth, did most of his important literary and dramatic work for Denmark, and is regarded as the real founder of Danish literature. The first movement is a Prelude ; a very robust semi-quaver figure persists throughout, against which there is now a heavy-footed theme in the basses, and anon a gracious tune in the wood winds and violins. The second movement is a Sarabande, in which the melody, in spite of its old-fashioned guise, is eminently typical of Grieg and Norway. A Gavotte follows, beginning with the same three notes as the Sarabande, in different rhythm; there is a Musette, after which the Gavotte returns. The fourth movement has an air of solemn, even religious import, and a very merry and boisterous Rigaudon brings the suite to an end in the best of spirits.
