About

ARIA Award-winning Australian pianist Gerard Willems presents an essential album of the enchanting piano music of Edvard Grieg.

Grieg wrote for the piano with profound love and affection, creating miniature masterpieces that glow with the rich beauty of the Norwegian countryside. Intimate yet expansive, bold yet delicate, they reveal the full extent of his musical genius: passionately Romantic, exquisitely Impressionist, fiercely patriotic and utterly human.

This double album features some of Grieg's best-loved piano works, including the complete Holberg Suite, highlights from Peer Gynt, and Wedding Day at Troldhaugen. Reaching from Grieg's student days as a teenager at the Leipzig Conservatorium to his final years in the tranquillity of his country retreat, this landmark collection traces in music the life of a true master of the piano.

This is the first all-Australian recording of Grieg’s piano music – featuring an Australian pianist, an Australian recording venue (the Sydney Conservatorium of Music) and an Australian piano. Made by the legendary piano-makers Stuart & Sons, the instrument has an individual sound and extraordinary clarity of tone, sustain and dynamic range.
