Notes & Reviews:

"The Nordic Folk Dances were not conceived as a single unit but are drawn from several opus numbers and cover a range of popular Scandinavian topics, including a brief encounter between a hunting party and a group of terrified elf-maids. Of course we hear hunting horns interrupting an elfin dance in the patented Mendelssohnian style and both the halling and springdans rhythms well loved by Grieg. There's also a fair amount of medieval imagery, including nostalgic recollections of an old castle and a courtly Minuet intended for a wedding party. If you love Grieg's dances (Svendsen's too) you'll scarcely need my recommendation to seek out this affectionately turned and warmly set forth collection." -ARG
