Grieg: At the Piano
(ed. Sylvia Hewig-Tröscher)
Each volume in the “At the Piano” series includes original pieces by one composer. The works are arranged in progressive order of difficulty and complement one another conceptually. Each piece ranges from one to eight pages. All volumes contain fingering and practical tips on technique and interpretation. The “At the Piano” series is an ideal introduction to the world of classical piano music and is particularly suitable for piano students and for all those who are returning to the piano after a long break. The series is edited by Sylvia Hewig-Tröscher, a piano professor at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich. She has decades of experience teaching young people and adults, gives concerts and masterclasses around the world, and is a much sought-after educator.
Edvard Grieg was a master of the Romantic miniature for piano, and with his ten volumes of “lyric pieces” he more or less created a new genre all on his own. These works offer an abundance of wonderful pieces that are ideal for a guided return to the piano. It proved difficult to choose a selection of them for our volume. But we also offer well-known pieces from the orchestral suites From Holberg's Time and Peer Gynt, which Grieg himself arranged for the piano. Naturally they are presented superbly in true Urtext.
