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

Grieg: Piano Music Vol 1

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

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

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

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