Today’s song was written by Edvard Grieg (1843-1907), and is entitled Solvejg’s Song. It is from the opera Peer Gynt, Op. 23, and is the incidental music to Henrik Ibsen’s 1867 play of the same name. It premiered along with the play on 24 February 1876 in Christiania, which is now Oslo, Norway.
Did you know that Edvard Grieg was Norwegian? Well now you do.

Thank you for the kudos. I like the piano version too.
Handel’s music sounds like it comes from Heaven. Grieg’s music sounds like it comes from somewhere else to me.
