I regret to say that I recently turned once again to the lyric, or perhaps should I say phyrric. Can you not rid me of this desease? The things I want to compose do not get composed, and the things I do not want to compose get composed. A vile desease!

(Griegs own descripton about his Lyric Pieces)


-I do not understand what Ole Bull was able to hear in my childishly naiv playing at that time. But he became very serious and spoke earnestly with my parents... Suddenly Ole Bull came over to me, shook me in his peculiar fashion and said, "you are going to Leipzig to become an artist!"


(From Griegs diary)
