Grieg: Complete Songs, Lieder / Marianne Hirsti, Christa Pfeiler, Kjell Magnus Sandve, Knut Skram, Rudolf Jansen

Notes & Reviews:

Although famous for his evergreen Piano Concerto and the music he composed for Ibsen's 'Peer Gynt', Grieg's output is dominated by short works - exquisite miniatures for piano and song. These are not songs as Schubert or Wolf would have composed. They are simple, folk-based, honest and true, and display the true genius of the composer as a miniaturist. If ever the saying "small is beautiful" applies, it is to these songs. After settling down with his wife (also his cousin) Nina Hagerup - the inspiration for many of his songs - he concentrated on establishing a Norwegian National School of music. This 7CD set is the only complete edition of the songs.
