 The Grieg Piano Concerto August 21, 2013 By B. Wilson (Sebastopol, CA) See All My Reviews "I was so impressed with this interpretation of the Grieg Piano Concerto when I heard it on KPFA that I had to order it. It is so powerful that every note sings to you. When I received the lovely two-CD set, I realized what a breadth of piano music was also included. I am so glad I purchased this CD." Report Abuse
