The Holberg Suite, Op. 40, more properly “From Holberg’s Time” (Norwegian: Fra Holbergs tid, German: Aus Holbergs Zeit), subtitled “Suite in olden style” (Norwegian: Suite i gammel stil, German: Suite im alten Stil), is a suite of five movements based on eighteenth century dance forms, written by Edvard Grieg in 1884 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Danish-Norwegian humanist playwright Ludvig Holberg.

nineteenth century music which makes use of musical styles and forms from the preceding century. It can be compared with Franz Liszt‘s À la Chapelle Sixtine, S.360 (1862) and contrasted with later neoclassical works.

The Holberg Suite was originally composed for the piano, but a year later was adapted for string orchestra. The suite consists of an introduction and a set of dances. It is a charming, early essay in neo-classicism, an attempt to echo as much as was known in Grieg’s time of the music of Holberg’s era.[1]

Although it is not as famous as Grieg’s incidental music from Peer Gynt, which is itself usually performed as arranged in a pair of suites, many critics regard the works as of equal merit.[2
