    Question Help! What is this song?

    I cannot believe I am having a mind fart over this very common piece - click the link below to hear it. I'm going crazy thinking it's Mussorgsky or Tchaikovsky...

    Thanks for any help!

    Peer Gynt (Edvard Grieg): In the hall of the Mountain King

    from the incidental music to the Ibsen play.

    (and please, don't pronounce it "p-eer gint"... it's more "pair g-une-t" - like "une" in French)

    By the way, the original is with chorus, and QUITE dramatic. It's sad we rarely hear it performed with the original full forces. The entire score is quite long. If I recall correctly, I have the complete recording somewhere and it takes up two CDs
