Peer-Gynt

If you’ve never heard of Peer-Gynt, that’s totally understandable. It was a musical written back in the good old days of 1867, with the music written by Edvard Greig. This isn’t really important, except that one of the movements, Act II Movement 5, is quite possibly some of the best classical music ever. It’s slightly more likely you’ve heard of it; it’s called: ‘In The Hall of the Mountain King.’ If you haven’t heard it, take this chance to enlighten yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRpzxKsSEZg

The build up is slow, I will admit, but once it gets going, it is just the most absurd, bombastic thing I think I have ever heard. One of the things I’ve always wanted to do is remix this piece.
