Music Composers

Edvard Grieg-Part 4

At the age of twelve or thirteen he commenced to compose, much to the disgust of his teachers who regarded such youthful

"indiscretions" as rubbish. Grieg had a distaste for everything that savored of the didactic or academic. Accordingly his school days were made very miserable to him by his materialistic teachers.

His first ambition, however, was to be a preacher, and he loved to declaim imaginary sermons to members of his family.  At the age of fifteen Grieg met that remarkable Norwegian musician and patriot, Ole Bull, who immediately took a great interest in the boy. It was through his influence that Grieg's parents were induced to send their talented son to the Leipsig Conservatory.
