Notes & Reviews:

Written after Grieg returned to settle in Norway, the Lyric Pieces, a total of 66 short pieces for piano, were published in ten volumes between 1867 and 1901. Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska performs a selection of 25 of these pieces with delicacy and refinement. Among these are the Romantic pieces, which earned him the nickname of the "Nordic Chopin": Berceuse (Op. 38, No. 1), Vals (Waltz, Op. 38, No. 7), Albumblad (Albumleaf, Op. 47, No. 2), Melodi (Op. 47, No. 3), and Notturno (Op. 54, No. 4). Other works include peasant and patriotic marches, dances, songs, and evocations of the Norwegian landscape.

BBC Music Magazine
Janina Fialkowska is one of today's most dependable pianists - bold, poetic, virtuosic and very much more…[the] cornucopian approach poses special challenges to the imagination, and technique, of the player. That Fialkowska has both in rich supply is abundantly clear in her recordings of Chopin's mazurkas, and much else besides.

Gramophone Magazine
[Fialkowska] has a temperament and style ideally suited to these miniature tone-poems.
