We are delighted to present this Hyperion disc of Edward Grieg songs. Grieg's sheer range as a songwriter - from the shortest settings of his Melodies of the Heart, Op. 5, folk-like and immediate, to the depth of distinctive inspiration that runs through every bar of the cycle Haugtussa - places him without question among the finest masters of the genre. One of the miracles of nineteenth-century Lieder, "Haugtussa" is often regarded as Grieg's masterpiece. It is certainly one of the greatest works ever written for the female voice, revealing the composer at the very height of his powers. These matchless examples of Scandinavian Romanticism are performed by the glorious Swedish mezzo Katarina Karnéus and pianist Julius Drake, whose "magical partnership" (The Guardian) drew critical raves for their recent Hyperion disc of Sibelius songs.
