Notes & Reviews:

This collection of Norwegian classical favourites ranges from pieces by Grieg, Sinding and Svendsen to works by their lesser-known contemporaries, many of which, including Hanssen's 'Valdres-March', Halvorsen's march the 'Entry of the Boyars' and the 'Funeral March' of Ole Olsen, the world's most northern composer, are deserving of wider recognition.
