Early Piano Pieces by Per Norgaard

These piano pieces are fascinating. Don’t expect a cool Nordic atmosphere‚ this music is modern, jagged often dissonant and reminiscent of Prokofiev. Two works are premiere recordings. The program ends with a dynamic Toccata written when Norgard was only 17. …All of this is superbly played by Swedish pianist Niklas Sivelöv, and the rich piano sound in these recordings made in Copenhagen’s Royal Danish Academy of Music are solid sonically. © 2017 ClassicalCDReview.com”
