Pour plus amples dtails:

A most important world première recording - possibly the world's most loved piano concerto, in the arrangement for two pianos partly written by Grieg himself. The CD also contains the first recording of Greig's piano version of the Homage March indomitably played as always by Britain's leading piano duo.

Divine Art has released another winner, this time for fans of piano literature and of Edvard Grieg. As part of a series of recordings by pianists Caroline Clemmow and Anthony Goldstone, “Grieg for Piano Duo” (catalog number 25042) contains two-piano versions of Grieg’s “Piano Concerto,” “Peer Gynt Suite 1,” “Norwegian Dances 1-4,” “Homage March” from “Sigurd Jorsalfar,” and Mozart’s “Piano Sonata in C” with a second piano part by Grieg.
I have always enjoyed piano versions of pieces more familiar in their fully orchestrated forms, because I feel I can better appreciate the inner structure of the music. With Grieg, however, these pieces stand on their own as utterly delightful minor masterpieces for the keyboard.
The comparison of Grieg’s flair for memorable melodies with that of Mozart is heightened by the inclusion of the latter’s work on this disc. This is a CD I will be replaying many times, as I have with other Divine Art recordings featuring these two marvelous players.
