Håvard Gimse is among the most eloquent and imaginative of Norwegian pianists and this expertly (if closely balanced) recorded anthology of dances from the Opp. 17, 66 and 72 collections together with some of Grieg’s own song transcriptions is a delight from start to finish. Recommended with enthusiasm. Robert Layton
