Notes & Reviews:

Edvard Grieg first met Percy Grainger in London in 1906 and the two became good friends, Grieg inviting the 'Young Apollo' to spend the summer of 1907 with him at Troldhaugen where they revised the famous Piano Concerto in A minor. Their alterations resulted in the last edition "sanctioned by Grieg himself", a version which enhances clarity and prevents undesirable self-indulgence from the performers. Norwegian composer Helge Evju's Piano Concerto takes up the challenge to compose a work based on incomplete concerto fragments by Grieg, creating a romantic and beautiful companion concerto full of 'noble passion'.
