  • April 16, 2021 Grieg complete lyric pieces for piano

    This volume of Grier’s lyric pieces is highly recommended. The paper is good quality, the notes are clearly spaced for easy reading, and the pages lay flat.

  • September 15, 2011 what a joy!

    Here's a remarkable, easy-to-use volume with ALL of Grieg's Lyric Pieces! No more hunting for single volumes of Opus 12, Opus 54... Thank you, Dover Publications! What a treat for me and my advancing piano students. "Grieg can sound like Chopin or Schumann one moment, Gershwin...

    the next!" exclaims one of those students... I think that sums up the singular harmonic beauty of Grieg's music. Enjoy learning these pieces!

  • May 12, 2011 romanticism at it's best

    I really like Liszt, unfortunately, as a lot of pianists know, his music is for gifted virtousos mostly. Grieg's lyric pieces are easier to play, and follow the same romantic style as Liszt's pieces. A person can add so much musicality to these pieces to make them very...

    beatiful and full of emotion. I really like that about these pieces.

  • March 24, 2009 Reprint of a Great Edition

    Grieg published his works, editing them himself, with C. F. Peters. This Dover edition is a reprint of that edition, but at half the cost. How could one argue for using any other edition when you have one done by the composer himself? Unless, of course, you want the original...

    one by Peters. In my opinion, every student should own a copy of this volume.

  • December 05, 2008 Very readable, complete collection

    These are fun, expressive pieces that are pretty easy for late, intermediate player like myself. They're short too. I had been looking for a collection of the Grieg lyric pieces and could only find very small collections, (usually only Op. 12) at fairly high prices. This was quite affordable...

    , contains ALL the lyric pieces and the print/paper are high quality.
