This edition was a cornerstone of the Naxos catalogue between the release of the first volume to the 14th. Brought together as a complete set, this attractive collection is a valuable one-stop reference for Grieg’s works for piano solo. Einar Steen-Nøkleberg is a leading Norwegian pianist, having made continuous international appearances and more than 50 recordings. He studied with Nicolai Dirdal and Hans Leygraf. Among other prizes and distinctions, some of the most important are the German Hochschulwettbewerb, the Norwegian Piano Competition in 1972, the Norwegian Critics' Prize for Best Performance in 1975 (for the interpretation in Grieg's Piano Concerto at the Bergen Festival), the Norwegian Recording of the Year in 1976 for a recital of Norwegian Baroque Composers, the Lindeman Prize ("Performer of the Year") 1984, the Grieg Prize in 1985 (Bergen) and 1992 (Oslo). He is a Knight of the St. Olav Order, appointed by the King of Norway for his activities for Norwegian music in general.

Excerpts of select reviews from previously released volumes included in this set:

Grieg: Piano Music Vol 1 / Steen-Nokleberg

Whether the music is early or late, Steen-Nokleberg plays with total sympathy and dedication.

– Penguin Guide to Classical Music [2003/04 edition]

Grieg: Piano Music Vol 2 / Steen-Nokleberg

His playing brims with charm, pathos, nostalgia, simplicity, drama, and whatever else is needed – invariably appropriate, straightforward, unaffected, and vivid.

– BBC Music Magazine

Grieg: Piano Music Vol 3 / Steen-Nokleberg

He conveys a splendidly rhapsodic spontaneity and there is much feeling. This disc deserves a particularly strong recommendation.
