The essence of Grainger’s music is most evident in his piano pieces, having taken ownership of traditional and popular influences and rejecting outdated conventions.

Grainger’s ingenious variation, textures and moods can be heard throughout, ranging from the fantastically popular Country Gardens to the elaborate fantasy on Porgy and Bess.

“The Bilder Duo, pianists Caroline Weichert and Clemens Rave, are frankly impeccable in this repertoire, technically spot-on and a lot of fun for the ears. They’ve been a duo since 2007, and they clearly enjoy this music... it all comes down to how you like your Grainger: if you like it on keyboards, run out and grab this.”
