Complete Lyric Pieces
With his “Lyric Pieces,” Edvard Grieg was writing a kind of poetic piano diary: between 1867 and 1901 he composed 66 short character pieces, published in ten books. Pieces such as “Wedding Day at Troldhaugen,” “March of the dwarfs” or “To the spring” are among Grieg's best-known works. Alongside these fairly virtuosic pieces there are also numerous simpler dances and melodies that can be played at an early stage when learning the piano. Until now only five single books were available from Henle (51480619, 51480627, 51480644, 51480681, 51480713), but now they have published the complete collection with fingerings by the Norwegian pianist and Grieg specialist Einar Steen-Nøkleberg.
