Wikipedia said:  “History

On a visit to Copenhagen, Grieg showed his overture to Niels Gade, who told Grieg: “This is trash, Grieg; go home and write something better.” After this, Grieg arranged this overture for piano duet and sent it in to a competition at the Swedish Academy, one of the judges being Gade. The overture took first prize and was published in its duet form in Stockholm.

Instrumentation

The overture is scored for piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombonesbass tuba, 3 timpanibass drumcymbalstriangle, and strings.”
