This is the fourth piece in Book I of Grieg's nearly career-long series of piano works called Lyric Pieces. The first volume of the eventual ten in the collection of 66 pieces was published in 1867 and the last in 1901. This attractive work, Elves' Dance, is one of several in the series mixing fantasy with folk-like music, as in the more famous later example from Book V, March of the Trolls, Op. 54. This earlier piece is one of the shortest in any volume, generally having a duration of a bit less than a minute. That brevity does not limit its appeal, however -- this is simply one of the more charming works in Book I. The piece opens in a playful mood, sounding more like a chase than a dance. There is a mixture of mischief and merriment here, of humor and high spirits, all to yield a colorful, lively work of great appeal. The theme consists of five rapidly played chords answered by playful swirling notes, the two elements exchanging volleys throughout the piece. The music is always graceful in its playfulness, delicate in its menace, and masterfully atmospheric in its deft sense for fantasy.

Although originally created for Piano, I created this arrangement of the Alvedans (Elves' Dance) for Flute & Classical Guitar.
