In the recordings of Emil Gilels one can witness the evolutionary process at work, both on a large scale and, still more remarkably, within single performances. His relation to any given work was akin to that between a portraitist and his subject. Each reflects the appearance and character of a unique individual captured at an equally unique point in time. Gilels' acclaimed interpretation of Edvard Grieg's Lyric Pieces mastered from the original sources and pressed on 180g heavy-weight vinyl with the original jacket packaging and liner notes courtesy of Deutsche Grammophon. 

"Here, surely, is a classic recording, one of calibre and status for all time. Rarely can a great artist have declared his love with such touching candour. By his own admission Gilels discovered in Grieg's Lyric Pieces a "whole world of intimate feeling" and at the 1974 sessions fought tirelessly to capture their intricate mix of innocence and experience. The results are of an unblemished purity, grace and contained eloquence." - Gramophone

"Gilels's anthology of 20 of the Lyric Pieces...is in a class of its own and an absolute must! Whatever else you get for your library, you have to have this - it sets standards which few others have approached." - BBC Music
