Troldtog is a lyric piece from Opus 54 by Edvard Grieg. Troldtog, along with Notturno Opus 54 No. 4, is one of the most played compositions in this Opus. When you listen to this piece, try to imagine the dwarfs teem in the first section, then they hide from the sun in the middle section, and eventually teem once the sun is gone.
Part of a 3-song project to create music to match the style and feel of Tolkien's Middle-earth, using his lyrics whenever applicable. Gimli sang this song to Sam and the rest of the Fellowship in the Mines of Moria when they were camped during the night. Tolkien described the kinds of instruments used by Dwarves in the early chapters of The Hobbit when Thorin Oakenshield and his company visited Bilbo's home and sang "That's What Bilbo Baggins Hates." Using only instruments mentioned there, I have tried to compose a song that conveys both the sadness the dwarves feel for the loss of Khazad-dûm, and the ancient power of the halls of Moria.
Score adapted by listening intensely to the original track. Hope you enjoy this "made by ear - piano interpretation". Please check out my other account "Neldor_2" too.
