Geirr Tveitt the pianist

In his preface on this release, Leif Ove Andsnes wrote:

“My first encounter with Geirr Tveitt as a pianist and performer was in August 93. Together with others from the Risør Chamber Music Festival, we visited the composers daughter, Gyri, to examine some material. We were at the same time given the pleasure of listening to old recordings with the composer himself as the performer. […]

In addition to this awsome playing it is also sensational that recordings exist of the ‘lost’ works such as the Concerto No. 3 for Piano and Orchestra, and the Morild Etude, with the composer himself at the piano. To me, Geirr Tveitt ranks among the greatest composer/pianists of the century, alongside with Bela Bartok, Behjamin Britten, Serge Prokofiev and Serge Rachmaninoff.”
