Janina Fialkowska

Edvard Grieg’s Lyric Pieces, a total of 66 masterly solo piano miniatures, were published in ten volumes over nearly five decades, 1867-1901. Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska performs a selection of 25 of these Romantic gems that earned the greatest Norwegian composer of the 19th c. the “Nordic Chopin” nickname: Berceuse (Op. 38/1), Vals (Waltz, Op. 38/7), Albumblad (Albumleaf, Op. 47/2), Melodi (Op. 47/3), and Notturno (Op. 54/4). Other works include peasant and patriotic marches, dances, songs and evocations of the Norwegian landscape. Beloved the world over for her exquisite pianism, Janina Fialkowska has been enchanting global audiences for over thirty years. Blending her vast experience with a refreshingly natural approach, "Fialkowska has become an artist of rare distinction as well as retaining all the virtuosity of her youth." (La Presse, Montréal)
