The piano music of the Norwegian composer Eyvind Alnæs (1872–1932) shows the influence of Grieg and likewise marries an essentially lyric style with the melodies and rhythms of Norwegian folk-music; the later pieces add an awareness of Debussy and French Impressionism. The works on this CD – none of them recorded before – have an immediate appeal and easy charm, although Alnæs can also indulge in stormy virtuosity.
