Piano Duet, 2 Pianos, 4 Hands - SMP Level 10 (Advanced)
2 Pianos, 4 Hands. Composed by Edvard Grieg (1843-1907). Edited by Einar Steen-N. 2 Pianos, 4-hands. Henle Music Folios. Pages: VII and 63. Softcover. 63 pages. G. Henle #HN719. Published by G. Henle (HL.51480719).

Item Number: HL.51480719

Grieg's celebrated Piano Concerto turns out to be an editor's nightmare. Even during the composer's lifetime the work was so famous that it had to be reprinted over and over again, each time with revisions from the composer. A detailed preface throws light into the mare's nest of the sources. Einar Steen-Nokleberg, equally well-known for his complete recording of Grieg's piano music, has judiciously revised the piano reduction to make it more playable.

  • October 27, 2009 Errors in this edition

    Although I adore Henle editions (especially for Beethoven) this edition of the Grieg piano concerto has several errors in it. Accidentals are in the wrong place in several places and there are even some completely wrong notes in the 3rd movement. I have double checked with other editions. Bottom line...

    . Great quality. As long as you don't mind fixing all the wrong notes that are written like I did.

  • March 28, 2009 Not the Best for this Work

    I am a huge Henle fan. I almost always choose that edition over all others. But for Grieg's works, it makes no sense to spend that amount of money. Grieg published his works, edited by Grieg himself, with C F Peters. Those editions are significantly less expensive than Henle...

    . How much more authentic can you get than a work published by the composer and edited by the composer? The Henle edition of Grieg is edited by someone other than Grieg. This is one composer with whom the best course is to buy the Peters edition and bypass the Henle.

  • March 31, 2006 Henly is THE best

    Um, I totally agree with the other review, and my piano teacher from Julliard almost always recommends the Henly edition. It's my favorite too.

  • February 13, 2006 HENLE IS ONE OF THE BEST.

    Henle is just fantastic, hands down. Very clean, and easy to read without the editing that a lot of other publishers do to music. The other thing that is really great is the quality of the paper. It has a particular cream color and a thick texture that does not...

    produce any kind of glare or shadow. Highly recommended!
