Penguin Guide, January 2009

This latest issue in Håvard Gimse’s survey lives up to the high expectation aroused by earlier issues in this series. He is a highly imaginative and sensitive player and is given excellent sound by the Naxos team.

Classical Net, July 2003

"Gimse plays it all brilliantly, and is fully at home with its lighter idiom. Naxos provides excellent sound and informative notes. Sibelius mavens and those with a preference for Grieg will likely find this entire series much to their taste."

Don Satz
MusicWeb International, June 2003

"Gimse delivers very attractive readings that are warm, poetic and user-friendly. Actually, you won't find more affectionate performances on disc.... each piece is expertly constructed with engrossing melodies and rhythms that are not soon forgotten... With little exception, these pieces are among Sibelius's most enjoyable. They flow beautifully and express human urges, regret and triumph. Sibelius also injects a delightful improvisation into a few of the works... Gimse continues to offer excellent readings with an enticing blend of warmth and mystery...These are absolute gems that retain my attention after many hearings...For those who remain interested in Sibelius piano discs, Gimse's Naxos series is a fine choice. The price tag is low, and he offers affectionate interpretations in rich and clear sound."
