Grieg’s sheer range as a song-writer - from the shortest settings, folk-like and immediate, to the major cycle Haugtussa - places him without question among the finest 19th century masters of the genre. These matchless examples of Scandinavian Romanticism are performed by the partnership of Swedish mezzo-soprano Katarina Karnéus and pianist Julius Drake, who drew great critical acclaim for their disc of Sibelius songs..
