 Metier is very proud to introduce the first recording of Edvard Grieg’s unfinished Piano Quintet, as completed masterfully by Michael Finnissy. Keeping closely within the bounds of the musical language known to Grieg, this new completion produces a 27-minute single-movement work of extreme quality. The second work on the album takes Grieg’s Quintet as its starting point and develops it gradually, adding more and more contemporary and free harmonies and melodic lines, as a modern-day ’reflection’ on the original Quintet.

 
The internationally renowned Kreutzer Quartet again produce a masterful performance with pianist Roderick Chadwick.

 “This disc reveals another side of Finnissy. His Grieg-Quintettsatz is a compassionately composed love letter in sound to Edvard Grieg written shortly after his stylistically faithful completion of the Piano Quintet. The Kreutzer Quartet and Roderick Chadwick play the game, an authentic mode of 19 th century expression and refuses to acknowledge it’s genuine fakeness. Attention-grabbing.” 

 
Philip Clark - Gramophone magazine

 “Here is a remarkable congruence of composers. [The completion of Grieg’s Quintet] is a creative transfiguration of academic prowess and critical insight.” 

 
Paul Driver - Sunday Times

                      Performance *****                Recording ****

“...This is fascinating and fun. The result is entirely convincing. The transformation (in the Quintettsatz) is masterly and utterly compelling, as are performance of both works from the Kreutzer Quartet and Roderick Chadwick. Strongly recommended.” 

Christopher Dingle - BBC Music Magazine


 “Completions of Grieg are not unique – but this one is certainly rather special. Finnissy has achieved something of a triumph. The Kreutzer Quartet players have long been champions of Finnissy’s music. In combination with Chadwick they are as eloquent as one could wish in the Piano Quintet completion, and skillfully negotiate the sudden stylistic shifts and non-sequiturs of Grieg-Quintettsatz: a notable addition to Finnissy’s discography – and Edward Grieg’s.”
