Info for Grieg: Lyric Pieces

Written over the course of thirty-five years, the Lyric Pieces accompanied Edward Grieg’s (1843-1907) entire career as a composer. The first volume appeared in 1867, when a youthful Grieg compiled some of his early compositions into a set of six pieces. They are a glimpse into his aesthetics, since much of the material he used for this first group is derived from the sounds of Norwegian folklore. It helped in the effort to create a much needed national musical identity, and Grieg would eventually be recognized as being Norway’s most important contributor.

Many of the sixty-six Lyric Pieces that Grieg published over the years gained immediate success, and maintain their popularity even today. Wedding at Troldhaugen or March of the Trolls are wonderful examples for their energy and drive, and so are Butterfly and Notturno for the delicate and dreamy sound world they portray. Four of the six works included in the set Op. 54 (1889-91) were eventually orchestrated by Anton Siedl and Grieg himself into what is today known as Lyric Suite. With the last set, Op. 71 (1901), Grieg salutes the new century with a tender smile.

In this three-album set, Alessandro Deljavan plays with great poetry and assurance. We cannot agree more with pianist Fou Ts'ong in his assessment of Alessandro Deljavan as “one of the most interesting pianists I’ve heard in my life.”

Grieg owned a Steinway concert grand, and this recording was made with a pair of stereo microphones capturing the sound of an old Steinway D to evoke the sounds Grieg himself may have heard from his own instrument.

Alessandro Deljavan, piano




Alessandro Deljavan
graduated in 2003 from the Conservatorio Statale di Musica Giuseppe Verdi, Milan, under the guidance of Riccardo Risaliti. From 2003-2005, he studied with E. Belli at the Conservatorio Statale di Musica G. B. Pergolesi, Fermo. He also earned his post-graduate degree at the Music University “G. Braga” in Teramo in 2007.

Throughout the 1990s, while still a youngster, Deljavan played in every major city in Italy and in a number of cities around the world. He competed in numerous national and international competitions, often capturing first prize, including top honors at the 1996 Concours musical de France in Paris. In 2005, he won second prize at the 'Johann Nepomuk Hummel International Competition' in Bratislava and took the 5th prize at the 'Gina Bachauer' Junior Artists Competition in Salt Lake City (the first Italian in the history of the competition).

At the age of 22, Deljavan won the 'John Giordano Jury Discretionary Award' at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and was confirmed by the critics as: 'The most accomplished and charismatic musicians of his generation'.

Deljavan is among the select young artists attending the International Piano Academy at Lake Como, Italy, under the tutelage of the academy’s art director, William Grant Nabore.

He is collaborating with us with a lot recordings (Schubert, Satie, Brahms, Rubinstein, Alkan). He recently took part on the recording of the Cramer's etudes produced by OnClassical for the Naxos label.
