Notes & Reviews:

"...Even if Sibelius did not think naturally in terms of the piano, he never writes, as Gould put it, against the grain of the instrument...[Gimse] produces consistent beauty of sound and is unfailingly musical. Phrases breathe naturally throughout and are shaped with intelligence and feeling...Distinguished playing and the best performances and recording I have heard of this repertoire." ***** -BBC Music
