"A 'must' for any collection of songs…Don't miss it" - Gramophone

This 1993 Deutsche Grammophon disc of Grieg songs, including many previously little-known items, was the most memorable of all recorded contributions to the 150th anniversary of Grieg's birth and promptly received Gramophone's coveted Record of the Year award.

"For every mood, for every nuance of meaning, von Otter finds the right expression… …von Otter's readings are immeasurably enhanced by the high imagination of Bengt Forsberg's playing: he confirms that he is one of the most thoughtful and spontaneous accompanists around today-a free-ranging spirit like his Swedish compatriot…. …will unquestionably be one of my discs of the year and is a 'must' for any collection of songs, indeed a collection of any kind. It cannot help but afford pleasure. Don't miss it.'…Gramophone
