Gerard Willems

Morning Mood: Solo Piano Music Of Edvard Grieg (2CD)

ARIA Award-winning Australian pianist Gerard Willems presents an essential album of the enchanting piano music of Edvard Grieg. Grieg wrote for the piano with profound love and affection, creating miniature masterpieces that glow with the rich beauty of the Norwegian countryside. Intimate yet expansive, bold yet delicate, they reveal the full extent of his musical genius: passionately Romantic, exquisitely Impressionist, fiercely patriotic and utterly human.
