Puck (Grieg) – Simplified Piano


This is an elementary piano arrangement of Grieg’s lyric piece “Puck”, all about the mischievous little kobold (or nisse/tomte) creature from Norwegian folklore. These fairy tale gnome-like creatures protect the family they live with from evil and misfortune, and even help with chores — unless they’re insulted, in which case they will play tricks, steal, or punish in other ways. Puck is a playful but easily offended creature, so one must please them with gifts to prevent their mischief!

This piano arrangement perfectly captures the mood of Grieg’s original music, at a level that is comfortably playable for later beginners. Enjoy the delightful contrast between staccato and slurred passages, with dance-like runs and hops. A fun performance piece in a minor key!
