Recorded on Grieg’s own piano at Troldhaugen.

Pål Eide, born in Bergen, Norway, in 1970, lives in Denmark. His first international release “Grey Clouds” with Liszt, Ravel, Debussy and Stravinsky, received spectacular reviews. Following studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and the Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, he made his debut in Copenhagen in 1997 and later studied with Jiří Hlinka in Norway. He has been given numerous recitals in Scandinavia and also recorded the album “Listen!” (2010) with Bach, Norheim, Koch and Rachmaninov.

“When Sigurd Sverdrup Sandmo and Thomas Heimstad at Troldhaugen heard my album ‘Grey Clouds’, they invited me to give my first recital on Grieg’s piano. The staff at EGMT has been wonderful. A unique experience was the event ‘Grieg minute-by-minute’ in 2018 when more than 600 musicians participated in live performances of all Grieg’s opuses in a 30-hour direct transmission on Norwegian national television, celebrating his 175th birthday. The coordination of this event was impressive and the atmosphere euphoric. I had the honor of performing one of his most famous works, op.43 and op.9, with singer Astrid Nordstad. We later gave a recital in Troldsalen, and this summer I will give 25 solo recitals as ‘Pianist of the Week’.” – Pål Eide

“...tremendous, clear in terms of line yet hugely exciting.” – International Piano

“He has a way of getting inside the music to elucidate the extra-musical imagery behind the notes” – Fanfare
