Notes and Editorial Reviews
Garrick Ohlsson scales the heights in this 1996 recording of the Grieg concerto, his prodigious technique more than a match for the demands of the solo part. Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields provide a suitably grand accompaniment, and it’s all brought home on a warm, spacious recording with impressive weight and presence. The main coupling, an exuberant account of the Symphonic Dances, makes an attractive companion piece to the concerto. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection.
