In 2007, conductor Rolf Gupta gave the first Norwegian performance of Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor with the legendary Australian pianist Percy Grainger as the posthumous soloist. On this recording the orchestra accompanies Grainger’s original interpretation of the concerto, also included are a handful of Grieg’s Lyric pieces performed by the composer himself and brought to live by modern technology. Astonishingly, these performances have not been available in any format until now.
“Overall… this is a fascinating interpretation, and the final pages are utterly thrilling.”
