Yes, life is as strange as
folk songs. We don’t know if
they were meant to be in major or minor key… Some of the melodies are exquisitely beautiful. At any rate I have written down chord progression that are outrageous. However,
in my defense I must say that they did not originate at the
piano, but in my mind.
(Grieg about his transcriptions of folk songs)
