Notes & Reviews:

Celebrated Spanish pianist Javier Perianes joins forces with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sakari Oramo for a performance of one of Grieg's most popular works. Composed when he was just 24, Grieg's Piano Concerto combines elements of the Romantic style with motifs typically found in Norwegian folk music. Grieg felt more comfortable writing in miniature forms and in 35 years, produced no fewer than 66 Lyric Pieces - every one a gem. The Piano Concerto is paired here with selections from that collection, including the popular March of the Trolls, the poetic Homesickness and his final lyric piece, Remembrances.

The Guardian, 28th May 2015
It is an interpretation into which soloist and orchestra seem, gratifyingly, to have grown together... the romantic expansiveness that marks their interpretation overall is tempered by playing from both pianist and orchestra that is as crisp and highly charged as one could want.

CD Review
I really fell for Perianes' playing here, I love that he embraces the breadth of that cadenza, he plays it as if it's totally fresh like we've never heard those themes before ... just gorgeous.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2015
Perianes's performance is of such a fearless and arresting brilliance that it virtually erases memories of the past. For here is Grieg restored to all its first icy, northern and unsentimental glory...The BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sakari Oramo are with their soloist all the way so that you may well find yourself falling in love and in awe all over again with this evergreen Romantic masterpiece.

International Piano, July/August 2015
There is spontaneity to Perianes' playing in this live concerto that is most compelling ... the orchestra plays with great beauty. Perianes' greatest achievement is the first movement cadenza, which emerges here as a brooding tone-poem; the debt to Lizst is clear...The stand-out success is the remarkable 'Notturno'; here Grieg's interior side clearly resonates with Perianes.

Pianist Magazine, August/September 2015
This version will give pleasure to those who want an unfussy, brilliant and virtuosic concerto ... The CD also includes a studio recording of a dozen Lyric Pieces, showing the pianist fully understands the idiom. It is all well recorded and performed.
