Notes & Reviews:

Stephen Kovacevich's performance of Griegs piano concerto reaches beyond the technically immaculate to a degree of spontaneity and poetry rarely matched in other recordings, and is caught in highly evocative and ideally rich sound, most seductive in the dreamy soporific slow movement." -Classic CD
