GRIEG: Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16 (New recording) by Edvard Grieg (1843-1907). For piano. Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD6006).
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. This concerto is less demanding than many of the big Romantic concerti, and more accessible to the serious student. This brand new recording features renowned European powerhouse Milena Mollova in a complete reference version, then you take center stage with the Plovdiv Symphony Orchestra under Maestro Nayden Todorov for your own brilliant performance!
Includes a beautiful, newly engraved printed solo part, edited with new fingering suggestions from Ms. Mollova, and with informative liner notes; a digital stereo compact disc, voluminously indexed for your convenience, containing a complete version with soloist, then a second performance of the orchestral accompaniment, minus you, the soloist; and a second compact disc containing a -20% reduced-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes.
