A description of the experience
Dictionary of Unitarian & Universalist Biography – ‘Edvard and Nina Grieg’ by Peter Hughes November 4, 2004
Later in life Grieg continued to write piano works, including those arranged from folk tunes he collected himself. Among the more adventurous of these latter works were Slåtter, op. 72, based upon fiddle tunes from the Telemark region. This set of pieces influenced Béla Bartók who used them as teaching material and was inspired by them to research his own Hungarian folk music.
