Edvard Grieg was a typical child prodigy: he was already composing at the age of nine, later became friends with Tschaikowski, and played concerts all over the world. His peaceful creative space was not far from Bergen, on a peak at the edge of Nordåsvannet. Here, he built himself a villa that he called ‘Troldhaugen’, which translates to ‘Troll hill’. Anyone visiting this place today becomes immersed in Grieg’s world of yesteryear: chandeliers, creaking floors, and velvet armchairs – you can even still enjoy a concert played on the venerable Steinway grand piano. One of the particular highlights is the red wooden garden shed. Offering just enough space for a desk, sofa, and piano, this is the place where Grieg composed his most important works.
