Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This thoroughly enjoyable, rumbustious piece [In Autumn] has many unmistakeable Griegian characteristics. Jarvi plays it for all it is worth, and his alert, yet sensitive performance shows once again his close rapport with the composer. The Old Norwegian Romance with Variations . . . is a work of much character and substance. Jarvi brings out its elements of typical, wistful charm with great skill and sensitivity, and his elegant, vivacious performance is a joy to hear. . . . [The Funeral March] makes an effective finale to a well-engineered, finely played disc." -- Gramophone "This thoroughly enjoyable, rumbustious piece [In Autumn] has many unmistakeable Griegian characteristics.
