AN EXCELLENT INTRODUCTION TO NORWAY’S GREATEST COMPOSER

When i first picked up this cd, i must say that i was somewhat dubious in doing so. ‘It’s just another Grieg collection’, i was thinking to myself. However, this collection is more than this. It offers an excellent insight to Norway’s greatest composer. Fine for anyone who wishes to find out more about this great composer
