Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Steen-Nøkleberg has tremendous sensitivity to Grieg’s multiple nuances of mood, colour and character throughout the discs. His playing brims in turn with charm, pathos, nostalgia, simplicity, drama and whatever else is needed – invariably appropriate, straightforward, unaffected and vivid."

-- Jessica Duchen, BBC Music Magazine
