Good point. For people to prove that Havergal Brian is great, they have to do a bunch of explaining and mental gymnastics. With Grieg, it's not necessary - the music speaks for itself. :)

And yes, I'll get around to those Lyric Pieces! ;)

Have you listened to any of Grieg's orchesterlieder? He didn't write much (most of which are just orchestrations of his lieder), but it is lovely music.

Nope, I haven’t - got any recommendations for recordings? I have heard some of his songs with piano and they’re quite lovely.

You can't go wrong with these two, Kyle:
