In this recording Tina Margareta Nilssen presents three piano works, each with a wide spectrum of expression and intensity. Two of them belong to the standard repertoire, but the third, by Signe Lund, is a practically unknown work, a real gem recorded here for the very first time. The Piano Sonata in E minor is one of Edvard Grieg’s most equilibristic and passionate works. Signe Lund’s beautiful music guides the listener through Norwegian nature, turbulent stormy weather and the French salons. And in Beethoven’s famous “Appassionata” sonata one can hear the struggles and suffering that ultimately led to his creation of a whole new era of music.
