Notes and Editorial Reviews

This exemplary recording by Gerhard Oppitz of the...solo piano music of Edvard Grieg was made in 1992... [The Lyric Pieces], written from the mid-1860s to the end of the 19th century exemplify Grieg’s output for the piano in microcosm. The last two volumes contain some of the best and most beloved music Grieg ever wrote. Of course, Volume 5, Numbers 1, 6, 2, 4 and 3 (the Lyric Suite) and From Holberg's Time (better known as the Holberg Suite), were both orchestrated by the composer, as were a number of other individual pieces... This set is recommended for all lovers of romantic piano music.
