Overview

Janina Fialkowska's 2015 release on ATMA Classique is a selection of Edvard Grieg's "Lyric Pieces," drawn from the full set of 66 miniatures, which were published between 1867 and 1901. Her choice of the most popular character pieces reflects a common practice among pianists to fit a representative sample on a single disc, necessarily leaving out less familiar numbers along the way. As a result, her CD of 25 tracks is comparable to other highlights albums that typically feature such favorites as the "Berceuse," "Butterfly," "March of the Trolls," "Sylph," "Wedding Day at Troldhaugen," "Evening in the Mountains," and "Remembrances." While Fialkowska's long career has yielded many fine recordings of Chopin, Schubert, and Liszt, this sensitive exploration of Grieg is a welcome addition to an impressive catalog that has been focused almost exclusively on the early Romantic period.
