Notes & Reviews:

"This disc is wholly delightful. Perhaps the most exciting "find" is Geirr Tveitt's orchestration of the Ballade, which sounds amazingly like--Geirr Tveitt! It's gorgeous. Tveitt maximizes the color and contrast in each unfolding variation, giving the music much more variety than most pianists manage to project when playing the original version. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Bjarte Engeset plays the work magnificently, clearly relishing its melodic freshness and sonic allure." -Classics Today (10/10)
