Wedding Day at Troldhaugen Op. 65, No. 6
for flute duo
Composed by Edvard Grieg
Arranged by Claudia Kramer Bissett
Published by Falls House Press
Grieg composed this joyful work for his wife Nina, in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary. He performed it for her and over 100 guests at the anniversary celebration at Troldhaugen, their home near Bergen, Norway. This arrangement was derived from Falls House Press’ previous arrangement for flute choir, and the publication contains two versions: one for two flutes and one for flute and B-flat clarinet. The parts are not interchangeable. For advanced players.
It omits the staccato bridge section between the first and second statements of the main theme in the orginal. The version for flute and clarinet has been transposed to lie in a better range for the clarinet, therefore both musicians must read from the same music.
