Notes & Reviews:

Edvard Grieg's Lyric Pieces occupied the Norwegian composer nearly his entire creative life. The four books of Grieg's Lyric Pieces are performed by Alexander Goldenweiser. A brilliant pianist, editor of piano literature and Moscow Conservatory professor for over fifty years, he is rightfully considered one of the founders of the 20th century Russian piano school. Two pieces by Grieg played by the composer himself (!) are a bonus.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
Goldenweiser's Lyric Pieces, recorded in his late 70s, have a lovely expressive purity, although there are some technical frailties. Two of Grieg's own piano-roll recordings from 1903 are a welcome bonus.
