Customer Review

on 30 April 2010
This is a beautiful performance, and fully deserves its Penguin Rosette. Grieg gained the title 'the Chopin of the North', and this disk shows why. His style is different from Chopin's, but this disk makes me feel that, at his best, he may be Chopin's equal. "Wedding Day" is included, Grieg's show-stopper, which is the equal of Chopin's big works. The other pieces are, indeed, lyric, and match Chopin's lighter pieces for beauty and inventiveness. Debussy, who Grieg anticipated in many ways, described one piece as 'a pink bonbon containing snow'. This is an apt description, if slightly too critical. I would suggest that sorbets is involved, rather than just plain snow, at least in Andsnes' hands.
