Notes and Editorial Reviews

...the orchestral playing and singing is all of good standard, with the American soprano Barbara Bonney outstanding in the part of Solveig.

Readers familiar only with the Peer Gynt suites will find the complete score a revelation, for Grieg emerges as a composer with a greater range of expressive power than one ever imagined.

-- Gramophone [2/1988, reviewing the complete Peer Gynt]
