"In the Hall of the Mountain King"

 How did he DO that?

Edvard Grieg, a Norwegian composer, knew how to tell a story through music. Think about how he wrote his music. Close your eyes and listen to “In the Hall of the Mountain King.” How did he make it sound as if something was chasing someone?  What did he do to the speed of the music? Think about the instruments he chose to create his scene. What were they? If you were the composer, would you do this differently?
