The op. 7 Sonata was Grieg's first major piano work. While traditional in form and structure, its originality is expressed through the incorporation of elements from Scandinavian dances and folk tunes. A recording of the piece made by Grieg himself in 1903 shows the virtuosic manner in which the composer approached his task: the tempi of the outer movements are markedly brisk, the whole performance bright and vivacious.

    Lots of variety in Grieg's Sonata. Also, I love ordering pieces from this company. Didn't want an entire book of Greig Sonata's, so this was great.

    Prior to having played this piece (well, the second movement, I have not played the rest), I had not heard of it, and still have never found a recording. If you get the chance to play it or hear it, however, take advantage. The piece is a magnificent work of...

    art bursting with emotion. I played the second movement as a 9th grader, so it's not too difficult by any means. It is indeed a simple, but beautiful piece (or at least the second movement is) and I highly reccomend it. A rare gem!
