Notes & Reviews:

For the tenth installment of Haenssler CLASSIC's new budget series, "Premium Composers," we are transported to the fjords and mountains of Norway for a full program of the most beautiful orchestral works of Edvard Grieg. Featured is the ever-popular Peer Gynt Suite, Holberg Suite and the immortal Piano Concerto. Each work is given a first-class performance under the direction of the legendary Neville Marriner.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2012
Strong, sinewy performances of Holberg and Peer Gynt suites, and the Symphonic Dances. Garrick Ohlsson is imperious in a tensile Piano Concerto.
