Performed by David Syme, piano
Accompaniment: Vienna Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Franz Litschauer
One of the most enchanting and popular piano concerti ever written, this is for many the epitome of nineteenth-century Romanticism, showing the great influence of both Schumann and Liszt, as well as Grieg's own fascination with Norwegian folk melodies. One of the most popular offerings in the MMO catalogue, it is less demanding than many of the big Romantic concerti, and more accessible to the serious student.
Includes a printed music score and a compact disc containing a complete version with soloist in digitally remastered stereo, followed by a recording of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist; plus a second CD featuring the complete version again, followed by a slow-tempo accompaniment version for practice purposes.
