  • March 13, 2008 Go Grieg!

    Sensitive and fun for an Intermediate or better player. It's fun to learn some great classical pieces other than the Mozarts, Beethovens or Bachs. I just love the variety of beautiful songs Grieg composed. Highly recommended.

  • June 28, 2006 Some of his BEST works

    Grieg is one of my favorite composers, and these selections are some of his greatest and most popular works. Each song is beautiful and distinct in its own way. My personal favorite is 'Watchman's Song'. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to gain more ability with the piano...
