Edvard Grieg


We’re learning about Edvard Grieg in school.
He’s a composer from Norway. I like to say the word Norwegian. It sounds like the word Walligi & Luigi. (This is from Mario Games.)

Here’s a funny story about Edvard Grieg.

He lived far away from school. When the kids got wet from walking to school in the rain, they could go home and change. Then they had to come back.
Edvard Grieg would sit under gutters and get soaked so he could go home and change. Because he lived so far away school would be over.

So one day he came to school soaking and it hardly rained so he didn’t get to go home and change.

He’s not as popular as he should be because Norwegian is hard to transfer to English.

**I heard this story about him at classics for kids.
