5 Question for In the
Hall of the Mountain
King
1. Initially, Peer Gynt sneaks away from
the troll King. Why does it sound like
he’s creeping?
2. Some trolls hidden in the crooks and
cracks of the old hall wake up as Peer
Gynt tries to find his way out. How
does the music change to
demonstrate this?
3. Think about which available
instruments you could use to show
your story has changed. The trolls
don’t want Peer Gynt to know they’re
on to his escape!
In the hall of the mountain King:
cont.
4. Peer Gynt keeps turning corners, shifting from the first and
modified motifs while more and more trolls being to wake up and
join in the chase.  What happens to the tempo, dynamics and
orchestration to illustrate this?

5. Peer Gynt realises the frenetic trolls are right behind him and as
he turns one way he finds a door, but it is locked! He turns another
way to find another door, but that is locked too! He turns around
one final time to find the King looking down on him. This is where
Grieg’s piece of music ends. What do you think might happen
next?
