If you're familiar with Grieg's piano concerto, you'll hear its melodic
fingerprints (influenced by Norwegian folk dance tunes) throughout the
present chamber works, notably in the Cello Sonata's first movement and
the G Minor String Quartet's Intermezzo.. The Sonata stands out for
Truls Mork's seamless bow arm, cutting edge fortes that never take a
vulgar leap, and soft playing that whispers with fullness of body.
