Reviews

[Grieg Songs] ‘Listening to Mme Flagstad’s recital makes one regret that she did not record more of her great countryman. The songs are varied and rewarding and her account of From Monte Pincio, one of the finest, is beautifully characterised as indeed are nearly all the songs on this record. I only regret that the quality of the recording was not better. The voice remains undimmed…’ Gramophone

‘…what a marvellously fresh and original work ‘Haugtussa’ is and how glorious is Flagstad’s tone and characterisation! I do urge readers who do not know this song-cycle to invest in this record’ Gramophone
