GRIEG - Peer Gynt Suite No 1, Op 46 - IV. In the Hall Of The Mountain King - High Quality Classical Music (Music in public domain)
Edvard Hagerup Grieg (Norwegian: [ˈɛdʋɑrd ˈhɑːɡərʉp ˈɡrɪɡ]; 15 June 1843 -- 4 September 1907) was a Norwegian composer and pianist. He is widely considered one of the leading Romantic era composers, and his music is part of the standard classical repertoire worldwide. His use and development of Norwegian folk music in his own compositions put the music of Norway in the international spectrum, as well as helping develop a national identity, much like Jean Sibelius and Antonín Dvořák did in Finland and Bohemia respectively. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edvard_Grieg
Peer Gynt, Op. 23 is the incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's 1867 play of the same name, written by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg in 1875. It premiered along with the play on 24 February 1876 in Christiania (now Oslo).
Later, in 1888 and 1891, Grieg extracted eight movements to make two four-movement suites: Suite No. 1, Op. 46, and Suite No. 2, Op. 55. Some of these movements have received coverage in popular culture; see Grieg's music in popular culture. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer_Gynt_%28Grieg%29
British rock band The Who recorded another performance of "Hall of the Mountain King" in 1967.
The song also appears during the teaser trailer of Tim Burton's Corpse Bride and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Beetlejuice, Funny Games, Bride Wars, Rat Race, Friday After Next, Burning Palms, The Borrowers, Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian, Needful Things and Dead Snow. It is also played over the end credits of the Woody Allen film Scoop. In the final episode of Beavis and Butthead, "In the Hall of the Mountain King" is being played when Principal McVicker has flashbacks to their antics. It was used as the three brothers theme on the Garfield and Friends spin-off Orson's Farm. It was used in the trailer for Inspector Gadget (film). In Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers Pete's song "Petey's King of France" is sung to the tune of this song. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grieg's_music_in_popular_culture
