Program Notes on Watchman's Song, Op. 12, No. 3 by Grieg :

Edvard Grieg's Watchman's Song, Op. 12, No. 3 is part of the composer's Lyric Pieces.

Grieg composed this Watchman's Song after a performance of Shakespeare's Macbeth.

This piano piece has an A-B-A' musical form :
  • A : The theme of this first section could very well depict the watchman being on the look-out (mm. 1-24)
  • B : Intermezzo Spirits of the Night : Here, Grieg imitates the drums (low half-notes in the left hand) and the horns (triadic arpeggios), alternating with the watchman's frightful shivers (pianissimo arpeggios in the right hand) (mm. 25-39)
  • A': Return of the first section, shortened and slightly modified (mm. 40-52)
