"Morning Mood" (Norwegian: Morgenstemning i ørkenen,  'Morning mood in the desert') is part of Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt, Op. 23, written in 1875 as incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's play of the same name, and was also included as the first of four movements in Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, Op. 46.
The piece depicts the rising of the sun in desert during act 4, scene 4, of Ibsen's play.

When I mention this piece, people always think about mountains in Norway. But, the hero Peer is stranded in the Moroccan desert. Scene begins with the following description: Dawn. The group of trees with acacias and palm trees. Peer Gynt in the tree with the broken branch in his hand keeps a swarm of monkeys from life.
As the suite has taken the piece out of its original context, it is not particularly well known in its original environment, Moroccoan desert, not Norway.

I felt it was was harder to play this, than Bach’s music.
