PLEASE NOTE: These are great recordings but they are not new. This disc, issued in september 2007 is simply a re-issue of parts of 5575622 and 5572962. In our opinion the cover is mis-leading in this respect.

“I always feel a sense of homecoming when I perform Grieg yet I don’t think that this is necessarily because I am Norwegian. Grieg’s music has a universal feeling - a sense of drawing the listener in - and that is probably why he remains Norway’s most eminent composer even now, 100 years after his death.” Leif Ove Andsnes
“Andsnes is an aristocrat among pianists who has the gift of uncovering new depths without any loss of spontaneity of the slightest trace of artifice.”
“How hard it is to over-praise the vitality and distinction of this princely pianist… His authority and finesse are total. Finely recorded, this disc is the best possible introduction to Grieg's range and character in his piano music.”
