5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpressibly beautiful miniatures. 22 Feb 2002
By darragh o'donoghue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Listening to the 'Lyric Pieces' for solo piano by Edvard Grieg is like stumbling across an old photo album in your attic belonging to a long-dead family you never knew. As you turn the dusty pages and pore over the sepia images, you slowly find yourself lost in a time before you were born, in a place you've never been, feeling emotions for people you never knew.
Collecting three books of these 'Pieces', this lovely and sad CD includes three of Grieg's most famous works: the ringingly festive 'Wedding-Day at Troldhaugen', written for his bride on their own wedding day, and which breaks the celebrations for a moment of hushed reflection; the exhausting mischief of 'Puck', a kind of Norwegian 'Flight Of The Bumblebee'; and the sublimely restful 'Peace Of The Woods', transporting you through time and across space to 19th century Scandanavian stillness.
These three modes figure throughout the collection - the social, deliberately nationalistic pieces (e.g. 'The Peasant's Song'; 'Halling' (a Norwegian Dance)); the playful party-pieces (e.g. 'Sailor's Song'); and, best of all, the heart-melting evocations of nature, nostalgia or wistful moods (e.g. 'Melancholy Waltz', 'Remembrances'). All sound distinctively Griegian, including those adapted from folk materials; if this risks a certain homogeneity, even music that is close to salon kitsch has the power to stop you short and freeze you. The most unaccountable piece is perhaps the most apparently sprightly, 'Grandmother's Minuet', which moves into a haunting Bach fugue.
Einar Steen-Nokleberg, who has recorded over a dozen CDs for Naxos of this music, shows no sign of flagging or complacency, treating all the pieces with a detached consideration and light execution that reveals emotional depths for the grateful listener.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous music in very good performances 6 Mar 2009
By G.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The complete piano music of Edvard Grieg is one of those extremely commendable projects undertaken by Naxos (and it is almost a surprise to realize how much there is of it), and it was an excellent choice to give it to the Grieg expert Einar Steen-Nøkleberg whose playing throughout the series is consistently fine (if not quite in the league of, say, Andsnes or Gilels in those surprisingly few works where competing alternatives are readily available). Of all his piano music, the series of lyrical pieces is in general the highlight, filled as they are with atmospheric and inventive gems displaying a surprising range of expression and Grieg's ability to provide harmonic colors to the fullest.

The three releases covering the lyrical pieces are chronologically ordered. This third volume thus begins with the fabulous eighth set, most known, perhaps, for the final piece "Bryllupsdag på Trollhaugen" (one of Grieg's most popular works). But the other pieces are excellent as well, in particular, perhaps, "Fra ungdomsdagene" and "I balladetone". The ninth set is one of the most variegated, including both salon pieces and more experimental works such as the atmospheric "Aften på Høyfjellet". The tenth and final volume is masterly and full of nostalgia, underlined by titles such as "Det var engang" ("Once upon a time"), "Forbi" ("Gone") and "Efterklang" (literally "Resonance", but figuratively "Reminiscence"). More than with any of the other sets, the pieces form a cogent whole.

As on the previous volumes, Steen-Nøkleberg plays everything with a strong sense of poetry and color. The slight overuse of rubato and lack of a sharp rhythmic focus is less prominent here than on some of the earlier releases in the series, and with good sound quality, this is overall a truly recommendable release.
