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.
