Greig’s Piano Concerto

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife and I attended the Utah symphony featuring Grieg’s piano concerto with Alexandra Dariescu. It was fantastic. I loved the music and would like to purchase an album either on vinyl, sacd or high Rez download of Grieg’s concerto. Does anyone have any recommendations of there favorite version? Thank you

This is generally considered a very good effort on SACD.  You could probably never leave BIS offerings and come away very happy with the variety of performances of this piece in fact.

This might be worth looking into as well if you prefer period instruments.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

                                                                          ―  William Shakespeare.

Dinu Lipatti Chopin/Grieg: Piano Concertos

 

I grew up listening to Lipatti's 1947 performance and it's still my favourite.

 

This is my all-time favorite recording of Grieg's PC. Had it on an old LP for years. Another special performance is from another Romanian, Radu Lupu. Krystian Zimerman with Karajan is memorable as well.

I don't listen to Grieg's PC as much as I should because I really like this piece.

I think that I'm going to give Lipatti's a try.

 

This is my suggestion:

I checked this out on Qobuz and both the playing and the sound quality are superb. I then had to go and buy his complete Decca recordings...

Sorry.:D

I saw him playing live once, but I can't recal the programme.

Well... his last performance was about 70 years ago?

I was talking about Lupu.

Some Googlin' tels me it was in 2009 and he played Bartok PC3.

I see..) Lupu is one of my favorite pianists ever. Never heard him live though. Some of his recordings melt me down, as his Schubert Decca CD with Moments Musicaux.
