Aases død



Per Gynt sings about his mother Aase's death. This beautiful music by Edvard Grieg creates a feeling of sorrow and sadness in me.

Very sad .. and it fits well on this day we stand united against terrorism, at 12 in the entire country..

Such music fits our present mood very well. Your support, and the support from all over the world means a lot to us.

But now we must start to move on, get back to "normal" as best we can, and show the world that we will not be crushed.

Me too Wil - this is one of the most poignant pieces of music and so appropriate for today.

That does fit the mood quite well. What an astoundingly sad event caused by the whim of a demented mind.
My heart goes out to the many people whose lives were horribly altered because of him.

This melancholy, beautiful music does strike just the chord for the sadness around the world in our solidarity with Norway.

Although this piece is beautiful, it is also very somber and poignant. It seems entirely appropriate as we remember the tragedy in Norway.

Very emotional piece. It brought out what words fail to say.
