Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) was one of the definitive leaders of Scandinavian music and his influence was great. Although composing many short piano pieces and chamber works, the work Grieg did for Henrik Ibsen stood out. Originally composing 90 minutes of orchestral music for the play, he later went back and extracted certain sections for the suites. Peer Gynt's travels around the world and distant lands are represented by the instruments Grieg chooses to use. The Peer Gynt suites are among his most well-known works, however they initially began as incidental compositions.
Edvard Grieg - Peer Gynt - Suite No. 1, Op. 46 - IV. In the Hall of the Mountain King
The Incidental music to Peer Gynt, Op. 23, was written in 1875 by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg as incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's 1876 play Peer Gynt. 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.

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

EDVARD GRIEG (15 June 1843 – 4 September 1907) NORWAY, ROMANTICISM (GRIEG PAGE►https://goo.gl/4IqF10)
"In the Hall of the Mountain King" (Norwegian: "Dovregubbens Hall") is a piece of orchestral music composed by Edvard Grieg for the sixth scene of act 2 in Henrik Ibsen's 1867 play "Peer Gynt". It was originally part of Opus 23 but was later extracted as the final piece of "Peer Gynt", Suite No. 1, Op. 46. Its easily recognizable theme has helped it attain iconic status in popular culture, where it has been arranged by many artists.
The piece is played as the title character Peer Gynt, in a dream-like fantasy, enters "Dovregubben (the troll Mountain King)'s Hall". The scene's introduction continues: "There is a great crowd of troll courtiers, gnomes and goblins. Dovregubben sits on his throne, with crown and sceptre, surrounded by his children and relatives. Peer Gynt stands before him. There is a tremendous uproar in the hall." The lines sung are the first lines in the scene.
Grieg himself wrote "For The Hall of the Mountain King I have written something that so reeks of cowpats, ultra-Norwegianism, and 'to-thyself-be-enough-ness' that I can't bear to hear it, though I hope that the irony will make itself felt." The theme of "to thyself be... enough" – avoiding the commitment implicit in the phrase "To thine own self be true" and just doing enough – is central to Peer Gynt's satire, and the phrase is discussed by Peer and the mountain king in the scene which follows the piece.
