About

A fascinating recording featuring Percy Grainger playing Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite and Grieg’s Norwegian Folk Songs and Peer Gynt Suite. Grainger enjoyed a duo career as a concert pianist and composer. These recordings, taken from piano rolls, allow us to sample the uniqueness of Grainger’s musicianship and skill.

For those who have not experienced these piano roll recordings, this is a highly recommended starting point.
