About

Written after Grieg returned to settle in Norway, the Lyric Pieces, a total of 66 short pieces for piano, were published in ten volumes between 1867 and 1901. Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska performs a selection of 25 of these pieces with delicacy and refinement. Among these are the Romantic pieces, which earned him the nickname of the 'Nordic Chopin': Berceuse (Op.38, No.1), Vals (Waltz, Op.38, No.7), Albumblad (Albumleaf, Op.47, No.2), Melodi (Op.47, No.3) and Notturno (Op.54, No.4). Other works include peasant and patriotic marches, dances, songs, and evocations of the Norwegian landscape.
 

Beloved the world over for her exquisite pianism, Janina Fialkowska has enchanted audiences for over thirty years with her glorious lyrical sound, her sterling musicianship and her profound sense of musical integrity. Blending her vast experience with her refreshingly natural approach, "Fialkowska has become an artist of rare distinction as well as retaining all the virtuosity of her youth" (La Presse, Montréal).
