      No less a pianist than the virtuoso Franz Liszt told Edvard Grieg “You carry on, my friend; you have the real stuff in you. And don’t ever let them frighten you!” upon previewing the younger man’s first (and only) piano concerto. This splendid masterpiece, with its sincere melodies and warm sonorities, has offered vigorous poetry to listeners ever since.
